Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD)

The jaw joint is the most commonly falsely stressed joint in the human body. This is often caused by a dentureís defective position in one or both areas of the teeth. Furthermore a false strain of the joint, such as bruxism (grinding teeth), could be another reason for jaw deformation. After the joint has already maladjusted, it can not be re-aligned conventionally to itís primary position. Here therapeutic treatments such as mouth splints or the like must be applied.
