Neuromuscular dentistry is a revolutionary and holistic approach to the health of your jaw and teeth. Though the name sounds intimidating, neuromuscular dentistry works non-invasively to ease your jaw into its optimal position. While traditional dentistry evaluates the teeth and gums, neuromuscular dentistry works with the hard tissues and the soft tissues, muscles and nerves.
Dr. Renfroe will help you understand the complex relationship between your hard and soft tissues. That relationship should be a harmonious one. When the jaw is misaligned, both the hard and soft tissues are affected and many ailments can result- ailments such as headaches, jaw pain, neck and shoulder pain, ringing in the ears, and dizziness, even numbness in your hands and fingers! In a number of cases, these symptoms are the result of TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder or syndrome). You will be surprised at how comfortable and non-invasive treatment for TMJ and other neuromuscular disorders can be. There are no injections, and no surgery. Many who thought they would always have to deal with pain have been restored to health and comfort.
Using sophisticated computerized EMG (electromyography of the jaw muscle), TMJ sonography, and magnetic jaw tracking equipment, Dr. Renfroe can identify the ideal bite position of your jaw. imagine being able to return to life without pain and discomfort.
