80% of Pain is from Muscle Spasm

Did you know 80% of pain is from muscle spasm?

Most pain experts in Neuromuscular Dentistry will tell you that pain is from muscle spasm. Why is that? Muscles that are short and tense do not receive the oxygen that they need to lengthen. Lengthened muscles receiving the proper nutrients are relaxed. In neuromuscular dentistry, we are able to place sensors on the muscle groups that are very important in the functioning of the jaw. The muscles that we look at closely are the anterior temporalis and the masseters. The miracle here is that we can relax the muscles to determine the optimal bite. And yes, we can change your bite to its optimal position! So many people lose the optimal length of their muscles over time due to clenching and grinding. Many people grind because the bite is not correct. We would love to help you find your optimal bite!
