Neuromuscular Dentistry

Serving Hobbs, Southeast New Mexico and West Texas


Neuruomuscular Dentist Carlsbad

Dr. B.J. Henderson is one of few cosmetic dentists in the Hobbs area to offer neuromuscular dentistry, the diagnosis and treatment of jaw joint dysfunction. Whether this is your first time hearing of neuromuscular dentistry, or you suspect you may have a bite problem, it can be very beneficial to have a neuromuscular examination during your regular dental visits.

Bad Bite Problems

If you have pain or discomfort in your head, neck, or jaw area, you may have a jaw joint condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. The root cause of this condition is a misalignment of how the upper and lower jaws fit together, referred to as a "bad bite". TMD symptoms range from mild to severe and may also include headaches, jaw pain, tooth loss, ringing in the ears, and numbness of the hands.

About Neuromuscular Dentistry

Neuromuscular dentistry is a very focused area of dentistry. Although it is still unknown by a good percentage of the general public, neuromuscular health is becoming a popular topic. The country has seen a rise in dentists who seek out post-graduate training in neuromuscular dentistry, and word-of-mouth is helping people become educated on the topic.

Because jaw joint problems can lead to destruction of enamel and other serious effects, they require prompt attention. Dentists who are skilled in this type of care work to bring balance to a bite that has become inefficient, dysfunctional, and is causing distress. Dr. Henderson uses many different types of treatments to help his patients beat TMD, including oral appliances, mouth guards, and dental reconstruction.

Your Neuromuscular Dentist

Neuromuscular dentistry skills are not taught in traditional dental schools. Dental professionals undergo specialized training to be able to properly identify jaw joint issues and treat them effectively. Dr. Henderson received his post-graduate training from the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies, one of the nation's most respected centers for cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry education.
