What is Neuromuscular Dentistry?
The occlusion (bite) is the foundation for dentistry. New technology now allows Dr. Laconi to objectively evaluate the complex relationship between teeth, temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and the masticatory muscles in order to achieve an occlusion (bite) that is based on the correct relationship between the mandible (lower jaw) and the skull.
Who is ideal for this treatment?
- A person who suffers from headaches
- Jaw pain- Tempormandibular joints (TMJ)
- Clicking of the jaw
If your bite is a major factor, Dr Laconi may recommend a custom made orthotic. With new technology and the use of Myotronics instrumentation the goal is to relax the muscles controlling the jaw position to establish a true bite. A study of muscle activity using electrodes is measured and recorded An orthotic is a plastic appliance that is worn over the teeth to adjust your bite and to get you in a true relationship with the mandible and the skull.
