Did you know that you can now get relief from: headaches, teeth and jaw pain?
The relationship between the joint of your jaw your teeth and the muscles of your head and neck is the focus of neuromuscular dentistry. Neuromuscular dentistry may be the key to relieve the pain and discomfort many people are suffering from.

Neuromuscular dentistry looks at the relationship between the muscles of the jaw, the jaw joint, and the position of the teeth.

To find the proper balance between the three, specialized training and state-of-the-art neuromuscular dentistry technology is required.
Using sophisticated computerized EMG (electromyography of the jaw muscles), TMJ sonography, and magnetic jaw tracking equipment, Dr. Johnstone can identify the ideal bite position of your jaw. Imagine being able to return to the normal routine of family life and business relationships independent of debilitating discomfort and pain medications, or even that annoying click.
