Neuromuscular dentistry enhances traditional dentistry. The term neuromuscular dentistry is used to describe the additional consideration of muscles and joint status when evaluating your bite or occlusion. Occlusion of how your teeth fit together, is affected by several factors – the teeth, the muscles and the temporomandibular joint ( TMJ ).

If you are suffering from TMJ, a neuromuscular dentist, like Dr. Escoto & Dr. Mantovani can play an integral role in restoring you to a healthy bite, and eliminating painful symptoms. The causes and symptoms of TMJ disorder ( TMD ) can vary widely. There is no magic one size fits all cure! Determining your best bite position is done through analysis of data collected from electromyography, tens and sonography. We look at how your jaw and muscles are functioning together when you chew, swallow, talk and most importantly rest. This objective data helps Dr. Escoto and Dr. Mantovani determine the best treatment plan for you.

Signs and Symptoms of a Neuromuscular imbalance in the bite include, but are not limited to:

+Headaches, including frontal and cluster
+Migraines
+Earaches or ringing of the ears
+Pain in the neck, head or shoulders
+Rapid wearing of enamel
+Sensitive teeth, including notching at the gum line and recession
+Jaw tenderness, Limited mouth opening
+Tingling of the fingertips
+Loose teeth, difficulty swallowing
+Clenching and grinding
+Jaw pain and or jaw noise, such as clicking or popping

The expertise of SoBeDentist’s Drs. Escoto and Mantovani goes above and beyond cosmetic and general dentistry––for which they are members of several state and national associations––to address sleep apnea and TMJ jaw disorders as well. In addition to relying on them for cleanings, implants, and braces, their patients come to them when they need help screening for sleep apnea or with TMJ symptoms such as headaches, vertigo, ringing of the ears, or head and neck pain. Both pros graduated from New York University’s School of Dentistry, and each has a set of specialties. Dr. Escoto focuses on Neuromuscular dentistry and is fluent in both Spanish and English. Dr. Mantovani specializes in surgery, and has a glimmering list of job and educational experiences that has influenced his career.

April showers bring…. NEW SMILES!

We all know “April showers bring May flowers” but why not make this Spring season a little brighter with a new smile!

A Confident Smile Will Change Someone’s Day

Give them a smile: a happy, friendly, and genuine smile. Go ahead, flash it; it’s contagious, it’s infectious, It’s the universal expression of happiness.  A simple smile can change someone’s day. 

Some people are a little nervous about smiling. They don’t think their smile looks good, or they think that smiling makes them look unprofessional or vulnerable. No matter how professional, intelligent, or “together” you think a serious face makes you appear, people almost always respond better to a smile.

We all know of someone we consider to have an “infectious” smile.  Infectious smiles always start with confidence.  If you’re not 100% confident in your smile, we’re here to help.

While our first concern is keeping your teeth and mouth as healthy as possible, we  have the tools and the training to make sure you have a smile that gives you confidence and a smile that you’re excited to share with others.

We’re more than happy to discuss with you the many options available to help you achieve a smile worth sharing and a smile that will change someone’s day –including your own.

Last chance!

Did you know Kissing can cause cavities?

Play it safe with our Valentine’s day tips!

1> Make sure you brush your teeth and tongue (yes, your tongue) twice a day and remove excess plaque and bacteria with flossing.

2> Use anti-bacterial mouth wash once or twice a day.

3> Chew gum. Chewing gum stimulates the salivary function and the function of saliva is to clean your teeth.

4> Eat good dental foods—an apple a day will keep both the doctor and the dentist away. Fiber-rich and crunchy foods are natural tooth cleaners.

5> Never go to sleep with an unclean mouth. When we sleep we have a reduced salivary flow. If you don’t wash away the cavity-causing bacteria your mouth won’t either.

6> Visit your dentist twice a year for check-ups.
