In simple terms, neuromuscular dentistry places the jaw into its optimal position, relieving symptoms associated with the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ). While traditional dentistry evaluates primarily the teeth, bones and gums, neuromuscular dentistry focuses on hard and soft tissues, muscles and nerves. This method of treatment determines the optimal physiological position of the jaw by measuring the relaxed position of the head and neck muscles; then repositions the jaw to achieve those exact measurements.
