Functional therapy

Incorrect loading of the teeth as the cause of many complaints

Teeth, jaw bones with the jaw joints and the masticatory muscles together form an extremely central functional unit of the body – the masticatory organ. We move the chewing organ hundreds of times a day when eating, swallowing or speaking. If this does not work properly, i.e. the bite is no longer correct, the interaction of teeth, chewing muscles and jaw joints is disrupted.

Do you suffer from:

  • Frequent headaches?
  • Tension in the head, neck or neck area?
  • Pain or disorders in the area of ​​the jaw joint and/or the ears?
  • Noises in the jaw joint?
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking?
  • Trouble closing your teeth?

Such complaints can be related to your teeth!

The interaction of teeth and bodily functions

With modern analysis and treatment methods and together with physiotherapists, orthodontists, oral surgeons and orthopaedists, we try to reconcile the body and jaw functions.
After a detailed initial consultation, a detailed examination is carried out to determine the functional condition and the interaction of teeth, muscles and jaw joint. Based on this detailed examination, we decide together on further diagnostic steps. Using different devices and methods, diagnostic surveys are then carried out in order to derive the therapeutic measures.

Using advanced methods and treatment approaches, we help you to coordinate the interaction of your body and jaw functions again and to free you from your complaints.
