It may sound complicated, but it is really quite simple. If the bite is incorrect, even if the smile looks attractive, trouble is not far behind.
Neuromuscular dentistry for TMJ treatment is the art and science of using the relaxed position of the muscles of the head and neck to place the jaw into an optimal physiologic position. Twenty-five years of research and clinical experience have shown this technique to be effective in treating patients with various levels of head and neck pain. It is also used in finding the optimal jaw position before restorative dentistry and greatly increases the longevity of restorations and natural dentition. Whenever the jaw joint, also known as the temporomandibular joint, is misaligned and causing problems, the condition is known as TMJ.
