Many people want to know what a neuromuscular dentist does. First, neuromuscular dentistry should not be separate from cosmetic or restorative dentistry. It is a necessary part of a complete solution to resolve pain issues and avoid creating them.
The muscles in your head, face, neck, shoulders and back are affected by how your teeth "create your bite". An improper bite overstresses, the jaw and its muscles producing pain throughout the upper body and head. A neuromuscular dentist makes sure your jaw is in its proper position and your smile and bite coexists correctly with it.
