At James Block Dentistry, we are committed to using the most advanced dental technologies and procedures to provide our patients with the utmost level of care. This is why we offer neuromuscular dentistry services. We fully embrace this practices to provide treatment and prevention for numerous bite alignment complications. While many haven’t heard about this form of dentistry, it’s an effective means to treat TMJ and for dental prosthetics. Using this technology, we are able to provide a more customized treatment plan to enhance your satisfaction.
What is Neuromuscular Dentistry?
This form of dentistry is an art so to say because it involves correcting dysfunctions of misalignment to reduce the stress placed on the muscles that connect tissues to the jaw. By reducing the stress and tension that’s placed on the muscles and bones, we’re able to realign the jaw to improve jaw function. As a result, pain, discomfort, and symptoms of a misaligned jaw greatly improve, especially for those with TMJ disorders and denture wearers.
The process involves a careful examination using specialized technology to determine the jaw’s proper position. By taking careful measurements while the muscles are relaxed, the jaw can then be realigned into the correct position according to those measurements. Using non-surgical treatments and no long term use of medications, the jaw is realigned to improve function and comfort.
Neuromuscular Dentistry for TMJ
Among one of the top conditions to benefit from this form of dentistry is TMJ. Treating TMJ with a neuromuscular dentist allows the jaw and bite to be realigned, improving the jaw’s function. As a result, the painful and uncomfortable symptoms of the condition are reduced because there’s less stress on the jaw. Using TENS therapy, TMJ orthodontics, and other orthodontic and restorative procedures, the dentist has the inside knowledge needed to create a more personalized and effective treatment plan.
Neuromuscular Dentistry for Dentures
Now, this form of dentistry is also used to increase the comfort and function of dental prosthetics. When the jaw isn’t aligned properly, it can cause pressure spots on the hard and soft tissues of the mouth. Not to mention, the misalignment can make it difficult for dentures to stay in place or function as they should. However, with this dentistry practice, we can create dentures that are customized to your jaw bite and alignment to reduce discomfort and pressure spots. As a result, your false teeth will fit better and work better while causing as little discomfort as possible.
James Block Dentistry offers the innovative treatment of neuromuscular dentistry to enhance the results of your care and comfort. We will set the jaw in a more comfortable position to relieve your pain and discomfort when treating TMJ. In addition, we will create neuromuscular dentures that are specially crafted to your unique facial structure when living with tooth loss.
Whether you’re coping with TMJ, tooth loss, or other painful oral health complications, we are able to provide the personalized treatment plan you need as a neuromuscular dentist. Call us today at (510) 246-3754 to schedule a consultation.
