After you have had your neuromuscular evaluation and Dr. Adams has determined your neuromuscular bite along the correct neuromuscular trajectory he will craft a special mouthpiece for you called an anatomical orthosis. The orthosis is worn over the lower teeth and serves to properly realign your bite orthopedically to the most muscle comfortable position. Once your muscles have become adjusted to this new position (usually over a period of 3-12 months), you will have several treatment options available to you:
- Orthodontic Therapy
- Reconstructive Therapy
- Combination of any of the above
The advantages and disadvantages of the treatment options you choose will be discussed with Dr. Adams. He can then co-diagnose your treatment options with you and help you select the treatment that will best suit your individual needs.
