Neuromuscular Dentistry Raleigh

Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on your jaw, head and neck muscles. For example, did you know that many common dental issues and other common conditions are typically caused by muscular problems? Grinding teeth, chronic headaches, chronic nasal congestion, locking jaw and much more all suggest a mechanical issue between your jaw, head and neck muscles. Thus, it is important for your dentist to understand and be able to treat these symptoms.

At Robbie Smith, DDS, our experienced dental staff has the skill and training you expect from your dentist. We use the most effective tools and technology to diagnose a wide range of neuromuscular disorders, including:

  • Clenching jaw
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Locking jaw

  • Difficulty chewing
  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Nasal and sinus congestion

Consequences if left untreated

In addition to bearing the pain associated with these conditions, you could experience deeper muscular and functional difficulties if you fail to treat them. If you believe you are suffering from any of these conditions, please contact Robbie Smith, DDS todayto schedule an appointment!

"Very positive experience. I have been going to the same dentist for 28 years before moving to Wake Forest. Needless to say, I was not looking forward to the transition. My dental hygienist was particularly nice and thoughtfully went over with me what she was doing. It is a great environment and a very friendly staff." - - Wake Forest, NC
