Comfort and esthetics are the Neuromuscular Standard
Everyone who wears a denture knows that a denture needs to fit well and be comfortable. However most people are not aware that the fit and comfort of a denture is strongly influenced by occlusion, commonly known as the bite.
A neuromuscular denture is designed to fit precisely within your mouth and harmonize the relationship between the muscles of the mouth and neck as well as the jaws and the denture teeth. This harmony sets the stage for a comfortable denture that works together with the facial structures to optimize the bite and create a well fitting, functional, beautiful denture.
Malocclusion is the term used in dentistry, for a bite which is not harmonious. When your teeth do not come together correctly your muscles around the mouth will compensate for this to help reduce your discomfort and they do this without you really noticing. Because the muscles have made this compensation they never fully relax, this can lead to a toxin build up within the muscle body which can show as other symptoms.
Some of the symptoms of a Malocclusion.
Although the signs and symptoms differ from person to person, the most common symptoms are listed below
- Frequent Headaches
- Ringing and congested ears
- Popping or clicking of the jaw
- Shoulder, neck and back pain
- Clenching and teeth grinding
- Tingling of the fingers
- Sensitive teeth and oral tissue
How it is done
With the use of a specialized instrument called a Myomonitor we will relax your muscles around your head and neck. The Myomonitor is an Ultra low frequency Transcutanios Electrical Neural Stimulation unit or TENS unit. This process is carried out for a period of 20-60 minutes at select stages of the denture treatment.
During the bite registration the muscles are relaxed, which allows us to correctly identify your lower jaws Neuromuscular or Physiological resting position. This then enables us to record your neuromuscular path of closure to your correct harmonious bite, utilizing the muscles to naturally stabilize the dentures. This closed position is recorded.
Results may vary, but people who are treated with Neuromuscular Dentistry and Neuromuscular Dentures find that some or all of their symptoms improve.
Neuromuscular denture principles have been in use for over forty years making this technique time proven. However with the use of newer instrument technology and materials this allows Ian Ringrose DD to produce truly superior dentures.
