What is gnathology and how can our specialists intervene

Gnathology is the branch of dentistry that studies disorders related to poor occlusion and incorrect movements of the jaw and the muscular system. Our gnathological center in Milan is specialized precisely in solving these problems, but first of all it is important to understand the basis on which we are moving.

Summarizing, the mouth is formed by two parts: a fixed upper part called the jaw, and a lower piece called the jaw. Every time we swallow, chew or speak, the mandibular and maxillary movements are controlled by the masticatory muscles and depend on the occlusion of the teeth. The reason why our dental practice in Milan is very simple: the dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (in the acronym ATM, like the subway), can cause multiple problems, such as:

  • Headache
  • Cervical pains
  • ATM joint blocks
  • Noises at ear level when we open and close our mouth
  • Facial pain near the ear
  • Dental wear
  • Postural problems
  • Insomnia
  • Nervousness and irritability

In Sanident, through specific diagnostic investigations (digital radiographs, electromyographic examination, assembly in articulation of plaster models, facial arch, stabilometric examination with platform), we investigate and then intervene to solve all possible gnathological problems, for example with the help of of resin artifacts called Bite. This therapy may subsequently require orthodontic or prosthetic treatment. If you think you may have problems that gnathology might be able to solve, come and find us in our Milan office or book a visit online!
