You suffer from frequent tension headaches, there is a limited range of motion in your head area, your jaw joints click, grind and pop loudly, sometimes you hear a ringing in your ears (tinnitus) – perhaps all these problems are familiar to you.
We are used to demanding top performance from our teeth during their natural, daily work (e.g. chewing). In addition, stress increases the pressure on our teeth: “Grit your teeth and carry on!”
Your masticatory (chewing) system does not only encompass your teeth and jaw joints, the corresponding muscles, including the head and neck muscles, are part of the balance system as well. Nerve tracts connect all of these parts with each other. If one component of this chain malfunctions, the other parts become overstrained by trying to compensate for the problem. Often, the muscles are then unable to relax, and imbalances occur, which frequently leads to signs of wear and chronic pain.
In many cases, when teeth are no longer properly aligned, they have to be restored to their natural anatomical function. The incorrect positioning and alignment may be due to losing teeth or to teeth shifting in the gums. It can also occur if dental prostheses, such as crowns or bridges, no longer perform their natural function after many years of use.
Extremely precise fillings and restorations based on the latest knowledge of biomimetic methods is our aim when it comes to harmonising your function. To be able to offer you comprehensive support and optimally coordinate the treatment measures, we work together with a specialised dental laboratory and a network of osteopaths and physiotherapists. Because in essence, if the bite is corrected, the muscles and the spine will also return to normal again.
