Neuromuscular dentistry is the science of using the relaxed position of the muscles of the head and neck to place the jaw in the optimal position for comfort and function. It is highly effective in relieving head and neck pain. It is also used in finding the optimal jaw position before restorative dentistry and greatly increases the longevity of the restorations.

Neuromuscular dentistry has brought an entirely new level of predictability to the treatment of head and neck disorders through utilization of objective, scientific, measurable data that serves as the foundation for diagnosis and treatment.

The process involves using sophisticated computerized diagnostics and bio-electrical instrumentation to record and interpret temporomandibular joint sounds (sonography), muscle activity (electromyography EMG), transcutaneous neural stimulation (TENS) and the path of the jaw movement in multiple dimensions (computerized mandibular scanning).

Combined with tomography (specialized jaw joint x-ray) this information will allow Dr. Abeles to find the optimal physiologic position for jaw and determine the best bite for relief of pain, muscle relaxation and comfort.
