About neuromuscular dentistry.
What is the difference between neuromuscular treatment for TMJ & TMD and typical dental treatment for TMJ & TMD?
Traditional dental treatment of TMJ & TMD relies on a combination of a random bite splints, drugs and psychiatric treatment but only treats the symptoms (pain) without treating the root cause of the disorder.
Neuromuscular dentistry uses sophisticated EMG and TENS technology to analyze and properly diagnose the underlying causes of your pain. By correctly diagnosing and treating the misalignment of the bite, the symptoms; jaw pain, headaches, migraines, neck and shoulder pain, can be eliminated. This can usually be accomplished without the need for potentially addicting pain medications which only mask the underlying problem.
The goal of neuromuscular dentistry is the permanent elimination of the source of your pain.
