Here at Boger Dental, we are proud to be one of the few offices to offer neuromuscular dentistry to patients here in Plymouth. Neuromuscular dentistry is a philosophy that is meant to correct some jaw misalignment at the temporomandibular joint. It helps to produce a more balanced bite. To learn more about this treatment, schedule a consultation with your friendly Boger Dental team.
Neuromuscular dentistry is used to help balance one’s bite. A strong, healthy, and well-balanced bite is key to optimal oral health. Generally, there is a misalignment in the jaw near the temporomandibular joint. This can cause one’s bite to be uneven and uncomfortable. If you think your bite may be uneven, let us know. We will assess the health of your bite to determine if you may benefit from treatment.
During your appointment, our team uses a variety of computerized instruments and systems to measure your jaw movements and muscle activity. This will determine the extent of your problem and to establish a natural resting position for the jaw. We will then develop a treatment plan based on your needs.
