Neuromuscular Dentistry in Bernardsville

Bernardsville Dentist Serving Morristown, Basking Ridge, Mendham, Chester, and Far Hills, NJ

Neuromuscular dentistry deals with the proper alignment of your jawbone in relation to your teeth and facial muscles. While traditional dentistry mainly evaluates your teeth, bones, and gums, neuromuscular dentistry works with the muscles, nerves, hard tissues, and soft tissues. By analyzing how each of these works with the others, a neuromuscular dentist can place your jaw into its ideal position.

If your jaw is misaligned, the hard and soft tissues are strained, resulting in a number of problems such as:

  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Clicking or popping sounds in your jaw joint

With many cases, these symptoms are the result of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD), an imbalance in your jaw-to-skull relationship that is caused by a bad bite.

TMD

TMD is a chronic, degenerative disease that can take years to surface. This condition affects millions of people across the United States. Fortunately, neuromuscular dentistry can help.

A bad bite (malocclusion) is fairly easy to correct. Using advanced technology to determine the position of your bad bite and finding the position for your ideal, relaxed bite, Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb can restore the harmony between your jaw, muscles, and nerves.

Neuromuscular Treatment

Treatment options for malocclusion include:

  • Dental orthotics (bite guards)
  • Orthodontics and Invisalign®
  • Full mouth restoration
  • The LVI Difference

Dr. Patti Swaintek-Lamb has been trained at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. This institute is the premier training center for neuromuscular dentists.

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience at Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville and Patti Swaintek-Lamb, DMD along with her tremendous staff. I have been to dozens of dentists over the years and hands down this has been my best experience and I loved my last dentist before I moved away. They are a wonderful combination of professional and caring. Great kindness and respect is shown to their patients. It is very welcoming environment. For those who dread the dental visit I recommend this office that works to create a calming and supportive atmosphere. The dental work/care was excellent from beginning to end and I look forward to my next visit.

My two sons, 8 and 10, are both receiving orthodontic treatment from Dr. Patti and I’ve been so happy with their progress. She is very thoughtful and thorough with her plans to give them both a healthier smile.

Dr. Patti and her incredible staff perfectly mix professionalism and brilliance with an ability to make patients feel right at home. I have been a patient for almost 10 years and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. From teeth cleanings to more invasive procedures, Dr. Patti's team is unmatched. Lately I have been treating for my sleep apnea. I can say without exaggeration that the device Dr. Patti prescribed and developed for me changed my life. I went from fitful nights of frequently-interrupted sleep all while snoring like a jackal, to sleeping through the night without making a sound. My wife may be happier at this development than I am. In short, whatever your dental/sleep needs, look no further than Aesthetic Dentistry.
