Neuromuscular Dentistry helping enhance people’s lives

Dr. Tamura has also taken his experience in treating his patients with Craniofacial Pain, and used the Neuromuscular principles of skeletal alignment with athletes.  The Athletic Performance Enhancing Orthotic’s (mouthpieces) he fabricates for his patients have given them increased strength, range of motion, speed, flexibility, stamina and increased mental alertness while under stress.
