What Is Neuromuscular Dentistry?
Neuromuscular dentists obtain specialized training beyond traditional dental education. A neuromuscular dentist has a deep understanding of the hard tissues, soft tissues, muscles, and nerves of the mouth and jaw. They understand these areas have a complex relationship.
Neuromuscular dentistry is focused on bringing balance to that relationship by determining the proper resting position of the jaw. It is the science of using the relaxed position of the muscles of the head and neck to place the jaw in its ideal physiologic position for optimal comfort and function.

I have been going to Dr. Walker for a very long time - at least 10-15 years. I have always been happy with everything he has done for me, including braces in my mid-60's to successfully address TMJ issues. I trust his advice and his staff are like friends. I can't imagine going anywhere else!

Treatment of TMJ may include adjusting the bite through orthotics, orthodontics, or restoring the teeth to their correct positions. Typically, treatment can be accomplished through a comfortable orthotic therapy. Dr. Walker stays on top of your progress with re-evaluation using the TENS unit. Orthodontics or restorative treatment options may be recommended in order to eliminate the orthotic permanently.
