Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ)

TMJ disorders refer to a series of events, painful or not, that may occur more frequently due to a stressful or demanding lifestyle. These disorders include:

  • Pain in the joint located between the skull and the mandible, often with the presence of “click” or “crack” during jaw movement.
  • Pain in the chewing muscles
  • Headaches
  • Painful tension in the sides of the face, shoulder muscles, back, neck, or chest
  • Teeth grinding also called bruxisme
  • Teeth clenching (clenching))
  • Tooth an crown fissure or fracture

It is important to recognize the symptoms of this syndrome and to take appropriate measures for treatment. There are several natural methods like autogenous training, self-control, and relaxation. We can also intervene by laying a occlusal release splint (relaxation splint), or by correcting any significant imbalances in teeth.
