Neuro-Muscular Dentistry

Neuromuscular dentistry differs from “traditional” dentistry in the emphasis that is placed on the activity of the muscles that move the jaw, rather than where the teeth come together.

Neuromuscrelaxed position on order to not be in conflict with the teeth and joint. Common symptoular dentistry recognises that the muscles which move the jaw must be in a comfortable, ms that occur when the teeth, jaws and muscles are in conflict include:

• Headaches
• Loose teeth
• Worn, chipped or cracked teeth or fillings
• Clenching or grinding
• Pain or clicking and popping in jaw joints
• Shoulder, neck and back pain
• Pain behind the eyes
• Pain and sensitivity in teeth
• Crowded teeth
• Ringing or congestion in the ears.

The first goal of neuromuscular dentistry is to find the position of the jaw where the muscles are relaxed and at rest. This position in space is often irrespective to the position of the teeth.

Once we have verified the comfortable position of the lower jaw, we can fabricate an orthotic that allows that jaw to close to this ideal position. In this position, muscles are at an ideal length and will not go into spasm. Muscles will heal, pain triggers will go away and joint capsules will heal. The orthotic is left in place for approximately three months, to stabilise the bite and ensure that all of the symptoms are gone.

At this point a personalised treatment plan will be decided upon.
