BITE AND ARTICULATION (TMJ)
In our clinic we diagnose and treat dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint and the surrounding musculature.
By designing customised splints we protect the teeth from chronic wear and tear, and prevent and avoid chronic degeneration of the joint. By distributing the occlusal forces (the bite contacts) the musculature is relaxed and the optimal range of muscular movement is restored.
We are dentists specialising in TMJ from the Dawson School of Dentistry and we treat these pathologies with multidisciplinary therapy with a physiotherapist specialising in TMJ.
Let's make a free appointment to take care of your oral health.

How TMJ is treated
Advantages of bite treatment
The treatment of these ailments by means of night splints provides a greater feeling of rest, waking up totally relaxed.
In most cases, it relieves muscle contraction and tension in the neck and provides relief from headaches and earaches.
In addition, it dissipates joint inflammation, protects teeth from wear and tear and protects the surrounding tissues from recession and abfractions.

What our patients say about us…
Cuando me pasaron, me hicieron varias fotos de mis dientes y me explicaron en que situación me encuentro y como tratarlo. Muy visual y claro, la verdad.
Antes de irme me dieron todo por escrito con un dibujo de mis dientes y lo que tengo que hacerme. Me voy contenta con cita reservada. Gracias!
