THE GNATHOLOGY IS THE BRANCH OF DENTISTRY STUDYING AND TREATMENT IN ALL ASPECTS ANATOMICO-FUNCTIONAL THE APPARATUS MASTICATORY.
There is a close relationship between the proper contact between the two dental arches, the mandibular muscles and bones craniomandibular, gnathology takes care to study and restore the proper balance between these districts solving the symptoms it brings.
The common goal of the gnatologi is finding the correct skull-mandibular joint, its maintenance and its restoration. Physiologically, the movement of the jaw is free, isotonic, without going to strain the structures attached to it, in the case of malocclusion and/or disorders of the temporomandibular joint, however, this movement is no longer with frequent disturbance isotonic speech, hearing and posture.
Gnatologica a visit may highlight the presence of malocclusions, disorders of the temporomandibular joint or skull-mandibular, cervical tests available for GNATOLOGI are manifold (RX, kinesiografia 3D, surface electromyography). After a thorough medical history and diagnosis used in therapy gnathology is the BITE, a resin plaque which improves the jaw closed and restores their correct position. In the presence of headache frequency.
who is the gnathologist?
The gnathologist is a dentist who specializes in gnathology that thanks to his studies possesses specific skills for the identification and resolution of various problems such as malocclusion gnathologic, skull and neck mandibular disorders, bruxism, temporomandibular joint disorders.
