Many of the lines and wrinkles in your face appear simply because of the way you move your facial muscles. Neurotoxins in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, can prevent this movement to keep your skin looking smooth and free of wrinkles. Call to set up a consultation and learn more from our dentist, Dr. Michelle A. Sanor!
Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on optimizing how the muscles, teeth, bone, jaws, and other structures work together. When these structures all function together properly, your smile will reach its ideal functionality and health. To reach this ideal harmony, treatment may include an evaluation of the posture of the head, neck, jaws, and body as a whole. We focus on muscular balance and occlusal (bite) stability to achieve a harmonious balance between all of the structures. When these structures are out of balance, it may result in several painful symptoms, such as:
- Jaw pain
- Chronic headaches
- Pain in the neck and shoulders
- Ear pain and ringing in the ears
- Facial pain
- Popping, clicking, or grinding noises in the jaw joint
- Painful or difficult chewing
- Increased tooth sensitivity
If you experience these symptoms, our dentist may recommend the benefits of neuromuscular dentistry for your smile. This treatment will focus on correcting the bite (how the teeth fit and work together) and aligning the jaw for an optimal bite relationship. Neuromuscular dentistry can help to improve your oral health and relieve painful symptoms.
