One of the first things people notice about you is when you smile. If your smile is off, so will everything else be that people think about you. I guess you could say your smile is your calling card. You need to do something to ensure this “calling card” is sending out the right messages. You need a dentist to take care of that smile for you. If you are in Wisconsin and need a dentist in Appleton, Dr. Douglas Nelson, DDS is available to give you professional service and care for your dentalwork. His practice is based on Neuromuscular and Aesthetic Dentistry. He wants to tell you about the various services that will be provided if you need neuromuscular dentistry.
Neuromuscular dentistry is performed when you have temporomandibular disorder (also called TMD and sometimes erroneously TMJ). Symptoms of this disorder are headaches, neck soreness, jaw pain, tooth loss, ringing in the ear and tension of the jaw. Of course, these signs could also be symptomatic of other ailments and so TMD often goes relatively unnoticed and therefore not treated. There are times when symptoms of TMD could also be in the arms and hands as numbness or in limited jaw movement (from where comes the term “lockjaw”). Anything that surfaces in your body as unusual should be looked into.
The goal of neuromuscular treatment is to alleviate any symptoms caused by the disorder and also to restore a healthy bite. The intent is to provide a long term solution to the problems caused by TMD. There are many options available for this treatment based on the imbalances in your jaw joint. Dr. Douglas Nelson focuses on finding the right solution for you.
In addition to neuromuscular treatment, he also provides general dentistry solutions such as regular exams and cleanings, cosmetic dentistry such as dental implants, tooth-colored fillings, dentures and porcelain veneers, sedation dentistry for the faint of heart, sleep apnea and snoring treatments and a variety of other dental solutions. For the past three decades plus years, he has been providing dental solutions in the Appleton, WI area.
