Functional therapy for jaw and bite disorders
Functional therapy for jaw and bite disorders as bruxism (grinding of the teeth), cracking of the joints or inability to open the mouth wide. Typical symptoms for this disorder are chronic muscle pains and tensions, pain in the neck and shoulders, migraines, pain and cracking sounds of the jaw, limitation in jaw movements and opening of the mouth , congestion or ringing of the ears (tinnitus). A bite splint can resolve this disorder. A bite splint is a removable acrylic tray designed to relax the muscle tension and relive the tissue surrounding the area. Your denture should match exactly in your teeth alignment so an exact measurement of your jaw is necessary. In several cases of the disorder we recommend also to see other doctors.
