Neuromuscular Dentistry: A Balanced Approach

We often don’t realize how valuable something is to us until it becomes painful or difficult to use. This is especially true when it comes to our mouths, since they’re responsible for so much of our day-to-day life including chewing, swallowing, speaking, yawning, singing and even kissing. If even one part of the highly complex oral and maxillofacial (the jaws and face) area is compromised, it can cause pain or discomfort every time a simple action such as yawning or chewing is attempted.

DR. BUCK'S PHILOSOPHY

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
