Most pain experts in Neuromuscular Dentistry will tell you that muscles that are in spasm cause pain. 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 muscles 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 as well to determine the optimal bite. And yes, we can change your bite to its optimal position! So many people loose the optimal length to 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!
