Neuromuscular Dentistry

Serving Patients in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Lawton, and Norman, OK

Neuromuscular dentistry is used to correct issues with your muscles, tendons, jaw bone/joint, and teeth and gums. This treatment focuses on correcting misalignment of the jaw, which in turn can lead to problems with eating, speaking, and even larger postural issues.

There are several symptoms that can be treated through neuromuscular dentistry. These symptoms include, but are not limited to:

• Headaches/migraines, and earaches
• Back, shoulder, and neck pain
• Facial pain, and/or swelling, particularly around the jaw joints
• Lockjaw, or limited mobility
• Jaw deviations to one side
• Clicking or popping in the jaw

Symptoms can also include nasal infections, ear infections, and nausea. If you experience any of these symptoms, neuromuscular dentistry may be an ideal solution for you.

Neuromuscular dentistry utilizes a number of computerized instrumentation, along with extensive training, and experience, to diagnose, treat, and cure issues related to jaw placement and function. Procedures vary by the needs of the patient and can include complex procedures like full mouth restoration, to simple oral appliance treatments like Pure Power Mouthguard. Our goal is to completely cure these issues, and we have the experience and training necessary to customize the option most suited to your personal needs.

If you live in or around Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and are experiencing any discomfort in your jaw, or would like more information on neuromuscular dentistry and how it can benefit you please contact Dr. Terry Bass, an experienced neuromuscular dentist, for your initial consultation.
