Migraines & Headaches

Migraine, HeadacheĀ and Jaw Condition Treatment Through Neuromuscular Dentistry

What is Neuromuscular Dentistry?

The way that your upper and lower teeth come together ( dental occlusion). If your teeth do not fit together properly, the muscles and joints accommodate work to get them together. A misaligned bite often leads to muscles that are overworked when they should be relaxed, leading to variety of painful conditions

The Neuromuscular dentist considers the entire system that controls the positioning and function of your jaws to establish a jaw position based on harmonious relationship of the three main factors affecting occlusion- the teeth, muscles and joints. The resulting jaw position is called the neuromuscular bite.

While headaches are typically treated by your doctor, an incorrect occlusion (bite) may play a significant role in certain types of headaches as well as other head and neck pain.
