SPECIALLY-TRAINED DENTISTS GIVE SAINTS ADDED EDGE TO WIN THE SUPER BOWL
Part of the New Orleans Saints Super Bowl victory is attributable to the science of neuromuscular dentistry. This season 40 of the Saints players including Tracy Porter, who caught the game-changing interception, wore a custom-fitted mouthguard that employs the science of neuromuscular dentistry. Neuromuscular dentistry involves placing the lower jaw into its optimal resting position.
Here is how it works. A misaligned bite often leads to chronic pain in the head, neck and jaw, grinding of the teeth and ringing in the ears and tingling in fingers, a condition known as temporomandibular jaw joint disorder, commonly referred to as TMD or TMJ. Just like flexing your arm for a second is comfortable but flexing it continuously for two or three minutes starts to hurt, a strained jaw eventually causes pain and discomfort.
Fixing the bite puts head, neck and jaw muscles in near-perfect alignment. This not only optimizes breathing and increases strength, balance, flexibility and endurance, it alleviates pain and discomfort associated with TMD. Click here to locate a specially-trained dentist in your area.
