A bad bite (called malocclusion) can cause problems you may not associate with your mouth. Just examine the symptoms listed above. Are you suffering any of these symptoms?



Migraine headaches cured through Neuromuscular orthodontics



Neck pain relief without surgery





A non surgical treatment concept, neuromuscular dentistry, can dramatically reduce or eliminate these symptoms. Donít take our words for it. Check these case studies out.

I canít be the right doctor for every one with TMJ, TMD , Migraine, jaw pain, neck pain symptoms. I will only accept a patient for treatment, if the patient has both

1. Evidence of misaligned jaw
2. Chief complaints are related to this misalignment

Because of this careful selection of patients, if we accept you as a patient, the success rate is over 90%. This compares very favorably to success rates of TMJ surgery or jaw surgery to treat these symptoms, which is below 50%.

We have many different treatment options to offer based on the case. One treatment definitely does not fit all cases.

American Dental Association recognizes only nine specialty areas. Cosmetic dentistry, TMJ, implant dentistry, Neuromuscular dentistry and Aesthetic dentistry are not part of these nine specialty areas. While Dr. Raman is a general dentist that has received many years of training in these areas and trains dentists from around the world in these advanced dental areas, since there is no ADA recognition of specialty in these areas, Missouri rules require the following statement. "Cosmetic dentistry, TMJ, implant dentistry, Neuromuscular dentistry and Aesthetic dentistry are specialty areas not recognized by the ADA that requires no specific educational training to advertise this service".

What is "TMJ"

Video Description

How the jaw fits is often different from where the teeth fit together. There is muscle strain as the jaw muscles have to struggle to accommodate the bad bite. This results in neck ache, head ache, ear pain and other symptoms. It can also result in jaw popping, clicking, joint pain, jaw joint strain that is called TMJ syndrome.
