Neuromuscular dentistry can prevent, heal pain and correct other conditions associated with poor interaction between jaw, teeth, facial muscles and body posture. By examining hard tissues (teeth and joints) and soft tissues, such as muscles and nerves, the neuromuscular approach aims to determine the ideal position of the jaw to maximize movement.
Traditional dentistry too often tends to neglect body posture, resting position and the role of muscles in chewing before undertaking any dental treatment. On the contrary, at the clinic, we perform a series of tests on the jaw before any intervention, whether it is a treatment against pain in the jaw, face or neck. We do the same during an orthodontic treatment, restoration or aesthetics.
