At American dental practices, our doctors are extensively trained to identify these strained facial muscles and the improper lower jaw position. They treat them to get the lower jaw in a balanced symmetrical position. This will enable them to have none of the muscles associated with the mandible be either overstretched or in spasms.

Achieving this will solve most of the above-mentioned health problems.

The treatment involves “deprogramming of the muscles” surrounding the lower jaw and maintaining the corrected position of the lower jaw by wearing an appliance called a “POSITIONER” during sleep.

Once the lower jaw achieves a balanced position, it can be maintained by rehabilitating the maxillary and mandibular teeth and creating a balanced dental bite in this position.
