WHAT IS NEUROMUSCULAR DENTISTRY?
Neuromuscular Dentistry is the science of dentistry that embodies accepted scientific principles
of patho-physiology, anatomy, form and function. NMD objectively evaluates the complex relationship
between teeth, temporomandibular joints and the masticatory muscles in order to achieve an occlusion
that is based on the optimal relationship between the mandible and the skull - Neuromuscular Occlusion.
The goal of the Neuromuscular Dentist is to relax the muscles controlling jaw position to establish
a true physiological rest position upon which treatment considerations are based.
In summary, NMD is the science of occlusion encompassing not only the teeth, but the objective evaluation of the status and function of the jaw muscles and joints — before, during and after treatment — to achieve the optimal result.
