Neuromuscular Dentistry offered by Dr. Plasch
You wouldn’t want a beautiful new car that wouldn’t run. Neither would you want a beautiful smile with poor function. Malocclusion (bad bite) is one of the main causes of cosmetic problems, along with your own natural teeth breaking and wearing excessively. In any case, correcting the bite, or balancing your bite, as part of the treatment plan is essential to ensure good function as well as durability of cosmetic or any other treatment. When your bite is balanced, your own natural teeth and any dental treatment will last longer.
Restoring the bite and the cosmetic appearance together may require more complex treatment than cosmetics alone. This could include such things as major reconstruction of the teeth, orthodontics, or both. Correction of your smile and your bite will depend upon many factors we will consider in your particular case. All of these aspects put together is called neuromuscular dentistry.
