The harmonious cooperation of your lower and upper jaw ensures the smooth flow of the chewing process and also your physical well-being.
Dysfunctions in the jaw can cause teeth grinding, clenching of the jaw or movement restrictions in the temporomandibular joint. The consequences are, for example, headaches or painful muscle tension in the chewing, temporal and even neck muscles. Such disorders are described by the technical term craniomandibular dysfunction.
In order to uncover the causes of such complaints, a comprehensive functional analysis of your dentition and possibly of the entire body statics is important. Appropriate measures can then be taken.
