Crooked and painful; Cristina’s smile story.

When Cristina noticed how much she refrained from smiling on a daily basis - because her smile was not only crooked, but also literally painful for her - she knew it was time to get it fixed.

When to See a Neuromuscular Dentist

Neuromuscular dentistry is the branch of dentistry focused on the health and alignment of the jaw, its surrounding musculature, and the network of nerves that run throughout it. A neuromuscular dentist is someone who has received post-graduate training in this particular branch of dentistry and is able to address issues such as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) and restore full comfort and function to the jaw.

TMJ is not one condition, but rather an umbrella term for any number of issues that can impact jaw alignment. In some cases, the underlying cause of TMJ is arthritis. In others, it may be trauma. Some instances are self-inflicted through bruxism or poor stress management, and others still are the result of underlying bite irregularities.
