A neuromuscular dentist works with the hard and soft tissues of your jaw in order to create your optimal bite position. TMJ/TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) is the misalignment of your bite. At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, we help patients who suffer from neuromuscular problems by realigning the joints and muscles of the jaw so they can return to healthy, pain-free lives.
Most people are not aware that they suffer from malocclusion (misaligned bite). The symptoms that present themselves are often mistaken for other, unrelated health problems. The result is that the symptoms are treated, but the patient can never enjoy total relief because the neuromuscular problem that is actually causing the symptoms remains untreated.
