The Benefits of Neuromuscular Dentistry for All Procedures
Neuromuscular dentistry is more than just treating TMJ, it’s an entirely different way of looking at dentistry that can improve the appearance, comfort, and durability of your dental restorations.
For example, if you crack a tooth, your traditional dentist may want to just put a dental crown on it, but a neuromuscular dentist will ask “why did that tooth crack?” and identify the bite imbalance that will crack the dental crown the way it did the tooth.
This is especially important when using porcelain veneers to restore worn, chipped, or cracked front teeth. Under normal conditions, porcelain veneers are highly durable and will last for decades, but a bad bite will destroy them.
A neuromuscular dentist will also look at the impact a dental restoration may have on your current bite, and will never give you a crown or filling that will cause you long-term discomfort or poor fit.
Drs. Ken & Marnie Collins received specialized training in neuromuscular dentistry from The Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies, the premier neuromuscular dental institute in the world. They are now clinical instructors at this neuromuscular dentistry school.
