Temporomandibular joint treatment is used for temporomandibular joint disorders and impaired mastication (chewing problems). Poor jaw position may result in a condition known as CMD (craniomandibular dysfunction).

Common symptoms of CMD are:

  • headache
  • back pain
  • tension in the neck and/or shoulder area
  • grinding of the teeth
  • clicking or popping of the jaw joint
  • inability to open the mouth wide
  • dizziness and tinnitus (ringing in the ears)

With CMD these symptoms are experienced constantly and can have a severe effect on your quality of life.

CMD can occur at any age. A poor bite is often the cause – i.e. the upper and lower jaw are not properly aligned when the jaws close. But this is by no means the only possible cause of CMD. Other areas of the body may also be responsible for the resulting pain, such as blockages in the spine or continued poor posture.

At our practice near the Marienplatz in Munich, we conduct a functional examination of your jaw joint, skull and the nerves in your face and skull. The spine, shoulders and hips are also considered and examined.

Treatment is ideally conducted in collaboration with your dentist.
