Jaw Joint Diagnostics: For a balanced life
Dr. Mateo Hermel: Malocclusion analysis by a specialist
When the upper and lower teeth clench, they even break bones, as the saying goes. But if you don’t? Even with minimal malpositions and malfunctions, they can then cause many infirmities. Headache and back pain belong to such “craniomandibular dysfunction”, bad posture, noises in the ears, tension, gnashing of teeth, dizziness and much more. A thorough diagnosis of the temporomandibular joint by a proven specialist such as Dr. Mateo Hermel vom Zahnloft can help.
Jaw joint diagnostics as an immediate aid
After a meticulous malocclusion analysis, Dr. Hermel helps, for example, by replacing inadequately fitted dentures such as crowns that are too high. The relief then takes effect astonishingly quickly and clearly – patients often feel noticeably better in the treatment room. Further measures range from the preparation and adaptation of appropriate functional splints to osteopathic treatments and referral to specialists.
A common cause of problems with the jaw joint is gnashing teeth: More than half of all Germans grind occasionally, the strain often exceeds the normal chewing pressure tenfold. The teeth are abraded and become shorter and shorter until under certain circumstances the upper and lower jaw no longer interact properly and individual teeth have no or incorrect contact.
Teeth grinding: Frequent trigger for malocclusion
As a result, the temporomandibular joints shift and can disbalance the statics of the entire skeleton in a kind of chain reaction: First the posture of the head changes, then the muscles become tense, and finally the cervical vertebrae and pelvis are malaligned. In the end, there is often even a herniated disc. In the tooth loft you can prevent this. Right from the start.
