Neuromuscular Dentistry in LA & Marina Del Rey CAWe all have different needs when it comes to dental health care. Each of us has a unique dental history that could affect our lifestyle and appearance. Regardless, it’s important to remember that every dental problem has a solution through the help of our most trusted dentists.

At Marina Del Rey, our specialist dentist Scott L. Tamura DMD, LVIF, specializes in neuromuscular dentistry. He is one of a select group of dentists who completed Core Courses in this field at The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. The main areas of focus for neuromuscular dentistry at Dr. Tamura’s clinic are:

  • Alignment
  • Balance
  • Harmony

The main objective of neuromuscular dentistry is to realign the jaw and improve functions, such as biting. This branch of dentistry aims to provide harmony among the hard and soft tissues, muscles and nerves, thus improving functionality and relieving the symptoms related to TMJ disorder.

Understanding the Pathway to Health Philosophy

At our clinic, we not only deal with our patients’ dental health, but the overall health of our patient as well. We promote the “Pathway to Health” philosophy, which guides our patients towards a healthier lifestyle.

We encourage our patients to follow this pathway by setting the goals that channel them towards success of the treatment, celebrating milestones along the way. Our pathway includes five steps:

  • Begin
  • Rejuvenate
  • Align
  • Enhance
  • Maintain

At the end of the day, it is all about having a positive attitude. Willingness to follow the pathway is the main key to achieving the results you are looking for.
