Neuromuscular dentistry is an approach to dental treatment that focuses on the correction of jaw misalignment. Our Las Vegas Neuromuscular dentists determine the optimal position of the jaw in order to correct misalignment and adjust how the upper and lower teeth come together (occlusion). By realigning the jaw joint through the use of cosmetic dental restorations, tooth recontouring (equilibration) or orthodontics, our dentists strive to alleviate stress from the jaw muscles and eliminate painful symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD).

People who have neglected getting dental treatments because of fear surrounding dental visits may feel like they are alone, but dental anxiety is a very common problem. Nearly half of Americans have neglected important dental care because they feel such intense stress when it comes time to schedule or show up for an appointment.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a dangerous sleep disorder that deprives the body of oxygen and increases the risk of serious health issues. It is the involuntary cessation of breath while sleeping. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing as many as hundreds of times per night.

A bright, restored smile can be a game-changer for those with severe tooth decay or a dental injury, but many people are unclear on the differences between two of the most popular restorative dental treatments: dental crowns and dental implants. The choice between getting a dental implant vs crown will depend on the severity of decay or trauma, your desired results, your budget, your health, and other factors you can discuss with your dentist. Here’s a general overview of the two treatments to get you started:

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD) refers to clinical problems involving the Temporomandibular Joints (TMJs), muscles and structures of the jaw area. Researchers have found clicking and popping noises in the jaw joints present in 40-60% of the general population. Healthy TMJs are completely silent. A small percentage of patients with TMD have symptoms which degenerate into crippling chronic pain and limited jaw mobility. A National Institute of Health study indicates that over nine million Americans suffer from TMJ pain on a regular basis.

It is estimated that millions of Americans suffer from sleep apnea, but far fewer know very much about what it is or how it can be treated. Quite simply sleep apnea is the disruption of normal breathing during sleep and can become a very serious problem if gone untreated. Sleep apnea can be difficult to diagnose since no one remembers how his or her breathing was the night before.
