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
- Tooth and root pain
- Difficulty chewing
- Chronic headaches or migraines
- Nasal and sinus congestion
- Clenching or grinding teeth
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!
