What is neuromuscular dentistry?

To put it simply, neuromuscular dentistry places the jaw into its optimal position, relieving the symptoms associated with TMJ. While traditional dentistry evaluates primarily the teeth, bones, and gums, neuromuscular dentistry works with the hard tissues and the soft tissues, muscles and nerves. Dr Salyani understands that your hard and soft tissues have a complex relationship and works to make that relationship a harmonious one. Neuromuscular dentists understand the necessity for including the power source (muscles) and the controls (nerves) that create the movement, pressures, and function of the mouth. When the jaw is misaligned, both the hard and soft tissues are affected and many physiological problems can result, such as headaches, jaw pain, neck and shoulder pain, tinnitus or ringing in the ears, and clicking or popping sounds in the jaw joint. In a number of cases, these symptoms are the result of TMJ (temporomandibular joint syndrome), also referred to as TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) or MPD (myofascial pain dysfunction). TMJ is a chronic degenerative disease that often takes years to develop. TMJ affects millions of people. People who suffer from TMJ have an imbalance in the jaw-to-skull relationship, which is caused by a bad bite (malocclusion).

Neuromuscular Dentistry serves to correct the bite and realign the jaw. First Dr. Salyani determines the optimal position of the jaw by measuring the relaxed position of the head and neck muscles, and then repositions the jaw to achieve those exact measurements. Malocclusion is relatively easy to correct. Treatment options include adjusting the bite, orthotics, orthodontics, or restoring the teeth to their correct positions.Benefits:Patients of neuromuscular dentistry experience a range of benefits from decreased or eliminated pain and discomfort to better overall health and longer-lasting dental restorations.

Can honestly say Collingwood Dentistry is the best dental office I’ve been to. Friendly staff and a dentist who explained the whole process as he went forward. I’ve had more discomfort getting fillings in that past compared to the root canal I got done here. No pain,no issues. Highly recommend.

The atmosphere is so inviting. The team members feel like a family and always put their patients first. I was shocked at how I didn’t need any freezing for a cavity I had. Dr. Salyani used a laser and it was done without any freezing or pain. I feel so lucky to have found this office.

I have suffered from migraine since I was a child. I have tried everything with no luck. Then my friend told me about Dr Salyani. This man is my savior. Through his state of the art scanning systems and his incredible knowledge, he was able to determine my migraines were coming from my jaw being out of alignment. I've been treated by him for almost a year and the migraines are gone! He has a gentle and calming nature and his team is top notch! They are so amazing that I drive 6 hours each way for my appointments!
