Corpus Christi Sleep Apnea Dentistry, TMJ, and Performance Enhancing Mouthguards

Dr. Don Lowrance

Are you troubled by constant headaches, neck pain, or ringing in the ears? Are you waking up in the morning feeling unrested? Do you feel you aren’t reaching your full potential as an athlete? The secret cause of all these problems could be your jaw.

Our bodies are amazing machines, and some of the most amazing parts of our bodies are the systems created by nerves, muscle, and bone. One of the most intricate of these systems is the neuromuscular system that ties our jaw to the rest of our bodies. The neuromuscular functionality of our bite affects more of our overall neuromuscular health and well-being than we understand even with today’s amazing technology.

Dr. Don Lowrance has been practicing dentistry since 1975 and he has focused on neuromuscular dentistry as the area of dentistry that he is most passionate about. Neuromuscular dentistry is the practice of addressing dental health as essential of the overall neuromuscular and physical health of the patient. Dr. Lowrance has the training and equipment to treat neuromuscular problems, but for the diagnosis of sleep apnea, he relies on the expertise of trained physicians.
