NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY: HOW DOES NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY HELP PATIENTS WITH MIGRAINES, HEADACHES AND TMJ DISORDERS

The real beauty of Neuromuscular Dentistry in the treatment and prevention of headaches and TMJ disorders is the simplicity of treatment.

The aim of treatment is to

1. Relax the jaw muscles to their physiologic healthiest state

2. Correct the occlusion so that muscle will return to their healthiest state after function by establishing a healthy neuromuscular path of closure to a stable occlusal position.

3. Remove problems that prevent achievement of a healthy neuromuscular occlusion.

Neuromuscular Dentistry enables us to target treatment to a specific area of healthy neuromuscular function.

Please explore this site and other blog entries for specifics on how this is accomplished.
