Chewing incorrectly is not only considered rude and hilarious, it can also induce feelings of vertigo and numbness in the fingertips. At Dental Wellness, the team of specialists belongs to the country’s 2% of dentists who practice a discipline called neuromuscular dentistry. This discipline studies the relationship between the teeth, gums, nerves, and muscles. As such, the team’s thorough examinations not only scrutinize teeth and tongues, but the patient’s jaw joint as well. That area’s complex system of muscles and sideburns can cause a range of ailments not normally associated with dentistry, such as migraine headaches and sore necks.
Whatever the dental issue, be it general, cosmetic, or restorative, the staff believes in the importance of keeping all treatments in house. Working together at every step of a patient’s treatment plan, they find, yields results in keeping with the original goal. With their focus on teamwork, the doctors are able to commune together and personally develop specialized treatment plans for each patient's unique needs.
