CMD and TMJ therapy

An imbalance of the relationship between the head and jaws, known as craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD), caused by a disturbed interaction of the upper and lower jaws (often resulting from problems between the jaws, teeth and related muscles), can lead to something called temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD). This is very common and often contributes to a wide range of complaints, such as discomfort or pain throughout the face, head or neck areas. If you suffer from this, please let us know when you contact us.

Frequent symptoms

This imbalance between the head, jaws and chewing mechanism can have a significant effect on your general sense of wellbeing. Symptoms may also extend to other areas of the body which are far away from the jaws and do not immediately seem to be involved with the disorder. Patients are generally not aware of how closely connected oral and mandibular function are with our overall state of health. Buzzing noises in the ears, headache or pain in the facial area and even backache could be an indication of TMJD. Cracking of the jaw, sensitivity of the teeth when chewing, excess pressure or abrasion from grinding of the teeth (bruxism) often accompany the condition, which can be triggered by several factors, including mental stress. There is a wide variety of therapies and treatments and, in the majority of cases, the outlook is usually a positive one.

Therapy

We examine the mechanics of your jaw and masticatory muscles (chewing function), observing individual patterns of movement. If we are able to see a connection between a misalignment of your bite and the symptoms, we will develop a customised course of therapy with you. Special dental splints are a simple measure which often helps to alleviate symptoms or even cure the imbalance completely. Jaw joint therapy is a collective term for a holistic interdisciplinary approach using various methods to correct jaw misalignment. We work closely with orthopaedic surgeons, osteopaths and physiotherapists to ensure that you are fully taken care of.
