The Neuromuscular theory is based on the identification of the physiological Rest Position (RP) of the mandible. This position can be obtained relaxing the postural muscles of the mandible via TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation). The RP represents a deconditioned position of the mandible relative to occlusion and provides the practitioner a starting point on establishing a new Centric Occlusion (CO) called Myo-Centric. This procedure is well documented live during Computerized Mandibular Scanning and gives the practitioner the opportunity to actually measure and pinpoint this new centric.
Neuromuscular Orthodontics (NO) is the application and use of this procedure to establish orthodontic treatment objectives in respect of function. Neuromuscular Orthodontics focuses on muscle, fascia, nerves, and all other tissues involved and part of the stomatognathic system without leaving behind the TMJ and teeth. For too many years, dentists have concentrated on teeth for a mechanical interpretation of occlusion, thereby forgetting the other two important components necessary to define an occlusion as functional: muscles and TMJ. Mandibular posture plays a key role in this picture and new research data in the recent years supports a close relationship with body posture. This scientific holistic approach represents a breakthrough in general dentistry and orthodontics and gives dentists the possibility to uncover the hidden physiological characteristics of the individual.
