Because he recognizes that dentistry is about more than your teeth, Dr. Krasowski offers neuromuscular dentistry services in addition to his cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry practice.
Neuromuscular dentistry evaluates and treats conditions affecting how your muscles, teeth and joints all work together. Neuromuscular dentistry corrects your bite so that the muscles that control your jaw movement are in the best position for comfort and function.
Dr. Krasowski understands that your hard and soft tissues have a complex relationship and wants to help make that relationship a harmonious one. Dr. Krasowski understands the need for your muscles and nerves to work together to create optimal movement and function of the mouth.
If your jaw is misaligned, both your hard and soft tissues are affected and many physiological problems can result. These results include:
- Jaw pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Ringing in the ears
- Clicking sounds in the jaw joint
In many cases, these types of symptoms can be the result of TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder). TMJ is a broad term for a collection of jaw conditions characterized by pain in the face, teeth, jaw and limitations in jaw movement.
