TMD TREATMENT AT CUZCO (MADRID)
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) acts like a hinge between the lower jaw and the skull, allowing functions such as chewing, talking or yawning. The TMJ can be subject to problems due to overworking. At our clinic in Cuzco (Madrid) we offer treatment for temporomandibular disorders (TMD).
TMDs are a group of conditions characterised by pain and dysfunction of the TMJ and/or the muscles surrounding it. The main types of TMDs are:
- Myofascial pain: intermittent or prolonged pain in the muscles that move the jaw.
- Disruption within the internal aspect of the TMJ: caused by disc displacement, dislocated jaw, mandibular condyle lesions.
- Degenerative joint disease.
Why do TMDs occur?
Temporomandibular disorders can be caused by jaw lesions, arthritis, unbalanced occlusion or stress. It is essential to visit a specialist as soon as possible to get treatment.
What are the symptoms of TMDs?
The most common are:
- Facial pain
- Pain in the jaw and neck
- Restricting opening of the jaw
- Changes in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together
- Spams in the jaw muscles
Treatment for tmd at Cuzco, Madrid
At our clinic we offer personalised treatment options for temporomandibular disorders.
When bruxism (the habit of clenching or grinding your teeth) occurs, a stabilisation splint is recommended in order to avoid consequences like dental erosion and/or treat bite alterations. At De la Torre clinic we have the solution to your bruxism problems.
Consists in selective remodelling of the surface of those teeth which interfere with normal mandibular function. Our experts at De la Torre clinic will carry out the tests in order to detect any anomalies and recommend the best treatment option for your problem.
We also treat sleep apnea in Cuzco (Madrid).
