There are a few factors to consider when finding the causes of orthodontic stress and bruxism: personal and nutritional stress as well as structural problems are worthy of consideration. It is important for a person with dental stress and bruxism to maintain a stable emotional life. It is also sensible to take vitamins, mineral and adaptogenic supplements to minimize the nutritional deficiencies that can put the nervous system on edge.
However, NCR is a very important part of effective treatment of dental stress and bruxism. NCR can relieve the mechanical stress on the nervous system from the musculoskeletal structures, which decreases orthodontic stress and bruxism greatly. Also, some of the effects of bruxism can be reversed.
Chronic chewing and grinding affect the shape of the teeth, and as the bite mechanics change, the chewing muscles slowly change the shape of the head. This head shape is rarely a desirable pattern, so NCR can help to remedy the problems created by bruxism and dental stress by reshaping the head.
Incidentally, it is very important for people undergoing orthodontia to have NCR sequences regularly during orthodontic treatment as well as after treatment, because the head alignment patterns created by the orthodontia can be improved greatly with the NCR.
