Through a series of comprehensive occlusal management courses, Dr. Nemeth has gained refined treatment skills in the areas of temporomandibular joint dysfunction and restorative orthodontic/orthopedic treatment. Incorporating the proper neuromuscular principles allows her to determine the best tooth alignment, which will provide not only a more predictable and comfortable bite but a better posture overall. Whether you’re in need of managing your temporomandibular pain or you need a comprehensive bite reconstruction, Dr. Nemeth uses careful quantitative analysis of occlusion and the interdependence of muscles, joints, and its relationship to the central nervous system to achieve the best restorative outcome.
NM—neuromuscular dentistry—is a combined understanding and advanced clinical application of skill sets required to effectively treat complex dental cases comprehensively. It is dentistry that focuses on body alignment, safe mandibular function, and accurate occlusion that results in optimal function and form based on objective measurements: J5 Myomonitor, K7 technology, computerized mandibular scanning (CMS), surface electromyography (EMG), electrosonography (ESG).
GNM occlusion focuses on analyzing and determining a starting treatment position where jaw joints and muscles are allowed to adapt to a healing process eliminating torque and tension in the masticatory and cervical systems. Most commonly, patients report a reduction of headaches, neck pain, and jaw joint relaxation.
