When and why to consult a gnathologist? Here are the reasons

Jaw that pops

The gnathologist is a specialist in the treatment of all those disorders linked to poor occlusion of the jaw and the muscular system. Among the most important mandibular functions we find: chewing, swallowing, phonatory and postural function.

The gnathologist is always part of the branch of dentistry but should not be confused with the dentist as they deal with totally different tasks. If dentistry takes care of the oral cavity in a general way, those who practice gnathology deal with the study and treatment of the pathologies that form in the joints of the mouth. But what is it about? In this article we will show you why you should not underestimate some symptoms.

The visit with the specialist in gnathology is important and will follow these steps:

  • the specialist will ask the patient to tell him about the accused ailments in chronological order
  • after having the clinical history told, he is able to trace a correct clinical picture
  • depending on the case, specific investigations are carried out such as digital x-rays, electromyographic examination, joint assembly of plaster models, etc.

At the end of the check-up, a specialist in gnathology will be able to understand whether the ailments accused by the patient can be related to a malocclusion problem.
