The body is designed to function in a decompressed state, allowing for proper blood supply as well as lymphatic drainage and optimal physiologic function. Compression is consistent with health and function and often creates pain.
Electromyography – (EMG) is an efficient and effective way to assess muscles both at rest and in function.
To measure EMG, you need a K7 equipment. We have it here in the office. Muscles at rest should have low resting EMG readings.
Neuromuscular dentistry is very broad and the approach for this is to find the physiologic position of your jaw. Once we find this position, the muscular balance will create a better occlusal stability and long-term restorative, orthodontic or orthopedic stability as well as enhanced esthetics for the patient.
