Gneuromuscular DentistryCoral Gables, FL
Gneuromuscular dentistry. Well, that’s a mouthful. So, let’s break it down in to a basic equation: gnathology—or traditional bite management—plus neuromuscular dentistry, which combines cutting edge dental science and technology to correct jaw misalignment, equals gneuromuscular dentistry. Gneuromuscular dental theory maintains that gnathology without neuromuscular dentistry is incomplete and visa-versa. The two together, however, allow for the most comprehensive treatment to reduce jaw muscle stress and eliminate the painful symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ.
Moreover, gneuromuscular dentistry doesn’t only focus on optimal mandibular (jaw) function and accurate occlusion (bite) but also on body alignment, in order to prevent debilitating problems such as headaches, difficulty chewing and speaking, and severe pain in your neck, back, shoulders and even arms.
When your temporomandibular joints are in their proper position, your jaw, mouth and neck muscles relax, thereby eliminating pain. To determine the proper position of your jaw, Dr. Bushdid and his team use the K7 Neuromuscular Evaluation System and TENS unit. The K7 Neuromuscular Evaluation System is a computerized tool that uses several different methods to diagnose the condition of your bite, including electromyography (EMG), electrosonography (ESG) and 3D imaging. Together, these tools help Dr. Bushdid determine where and how your bite is misaligned. The TENS unit relaxes muscles in the head and neck by delivering comfortable electric stimulation to these specific areas in order to achieve a relaxed state.
With the K7 Neuromuscular Evaluation System and the TENS unit Dr. Bushdid will be able to determine the perfectly comfortable position for your bite. Depending on you unique situation, he may prescribe a variety of treatment options including:
- A gneuromuscular temporary orthotic
- Gneuromuscular Orthodontics
- Semi permanent Orthotic
- Full Mouth rehabilitation with Porcelain restorations
- Combination of the above treatments
If gneuromuscular dentistry sounds like the treatment you need, please contact our team immediately to schedule an appointment. There’s no reason to live with the pain of TMJ. Dr. Bushdid and his team in Coral Gables, FL, are waiting to help you.
