Neuromuscular dentistry (NMD) concerns the operation and condition of the muscles that control the position of the jaw, chewing and swallowing.
The goal is to relax these muscles to establish a true physiological rest position upon which treatment decisions can then be based.
The occlusion science
NMD is a science of occlusion that not only takes account of factors related directly to the teeth, but also establishes an objective evaluation of the operating status of the temporomandibular muscles and joints.
It provides a global approach for optimal results.
