Insurance: If your insurance company is not collecting a premium for treatment of a particular diagnostic code, they do not have the funds to pay for the associated treatment code. It's because of our shift from "service" to "commodity" health care. Your Dentist, Orthodontist, Oral Surgeon, or Oro-facial Pain expert should be able to help you address your Insurance shortfall.

Yes: There are a great many studies relating NM dentistry to TMJ. A company called Myotronics has an excellent library if you are interested.

Tons of Research: There are too many scientific articles & case studies about neuromuscular dentistry to count. It works. However, as with ANY treatment philosophy & approach, it has to be done correctly, by the right dentist, on the right patient. If that's not correct, then the results won't be there either. As always, the correct diagnosis and treatment must go hand in hand. But, other approaches can work, too.
