Objective Measuring Technology-"If it is measured it is a fact!"
Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) is defined as a group of clinical problems that involve the masticatory muscles, the tempormandibular joint (TMJ), and the associated structures such as the dentition and neuromuscular system complex. Problems such as:
- facial pain
- unexplained tooth pain,
- clicking and popping of the joints
- neck and shoulder pain
- lower back pain
- ringing in the ears
- pressure behind the eyes
When rendering dental restorative treatment, orthodontics and TMJ treatment one must take into consideration the current biting surface condition, the status of the muscles of the face, neck and shoulders and jaw joint position.
Gneuromuscular dentistry is a combined understanding and application of skill sets required to effectively treat the more complex cases. "It’s Dentistry that focuses on body alignment, optimal mandibular function and accurate occlusion that results in optimal form."
It encompasses the philosophy of gnatholgy (study of the jaw) and Neuromuscular dentistry. It is about occlusion and it’s relationship to the trigeminal system as it relates to the postural system.
Kineseology is defined as the sum of what is known regarding human motion. Mandibular kineseology is the analysis and study of mandibular jaw tracking movements to describe and record motion events. Mandibular kinesiology (jaw tracking) is an indispensible means to analyze muscular, ligamentous,bony and occlusal compnents of masticatory function.
