Neuromuscular Dentistry

Some of the problems people face with their teeth are not due to decay, but to tooth and jaw misalignment. Two of our dentists, Dr. Dooley and Dr. Quezada, are graduates of the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). They have completed rigorous post-graduate training in neuromuscular dentistry (and cosmetic dentistry).

A neuromuscular dentist works with your teeth and gums in a larger context than a general dentist. He looks at your jaw joint, its related muscles and nerves, your bite (the way your upper and lower teeth come together), and your smile's health and beauty together.

If you have been suffering from chronic headaches, you might have TMD. That is a misaligned jaw joint, and is something a neuromuscular dentist can diagnose and treat. We have technology which can test your jaw joint's movements and sounds (clicking or popping sounds are a symptom of TMD), and the electrical activity of the jaw muscles. Our dentists can analyze this to come up with a customized treatment for your particular form of TMD.

To find out more about neuromuscular dentistry in the Chicago area, please call or email us at the Colonial Dental Group to set up an initial consultation.
