Are you experiencing:
- Pain in and around the jaw areas
- The sound of your jaw clicking or popping
- Dizziness, grinding or clenching your teeth
- Stiff or sore neck and shoulder muscles
- Toothaches or sensitive teeth unrelated to cavities or gum disease
- Clogging or stuffiness in your ears
- Abnormal tooth wear at the gum line or a loss of tooth enamel
Biometric procedures begin with treatments using advanced computerized equipment that sends electro-pulses into facial muscles. Once the muscles are relaxed, the ultimate stress-free position of the jaw muscles can be determined. An orthotic appliance is then designed to help reposition the bite and stabilize the facial muscles in a comfortable position.
Biometric treatments can prevent the teeth from shifting. Patients share that their headaches disappear and they no longer need pain medication. They also lend to experience a more restful sleep. For many, this is life-changing.
Have you ever wondered why you have headaches so frequently? Do you medicate daily as though you were taking vitamins? Do you wake up with sore jaw muscles? Are your teeth getting shorter over the years? Isn't it about time to treat the problem rather than the symptoms? If so, than neuromuscular dentistry may b the best treatment option. This technique is based on the belief that a healthy smile begins with healthy muscles, joints, and bite (occlusion). This method of treatment determines the optimal physiological jaw position relative to the skull by obtaining the relaxed position of the masticating muscles (chewing muscles), face muscles, and posturing muscles and positioning the bite into this physiological position.
Muscles that control the jaw are used when chewing, swallowing, and speaking. Muscles (which are soft tissue) that are imbalanced by the occlusion (bite) begin to rage a war against the teeth (which are hard tissue) that forms the bite. This is how excessive tooth wear, uneven tooth wear, tooth fracture, chronic headaches and migraines, sore jaw muscles and a host of other physical and dental disorders originate. However, these conditions are changed by adjusting the bite, orthodontics, or restoring the teeth to the correct jaw position. When the optimal position is achieved benefits include a decrease or elimination of pain and discomfort, better overall health, and longer lasting restorations. Patient's share that their headaches disappear and they no longer need chronic pain medications (saving a lot of money on medications). They may also experience more restful sleep and for many this is a life-changing service.
