How teeth affect the body
Interdisciplinary co-operation with specialists
Since our teeth are closely linked to other areas of the body, e.g., the throat, chest, stomach and pelvis, dental changes have a considerable impact on the body as a whole, e.g. malpositioning of the lower jaw may contribute to curvature of the spinal column or pelvic obliquity. Extracted teeth may obstruct development of the nasal area; breathing becomes more difficult.
Optimal treatment is based on an overall concept
Nocturnal teeth-grinding (Bruxismus) with uncontrolled friction of upper and lower jaw not only wears down the tooth substance but may also bring about changes in the mandibular joint.
Optimal treatment is based on an overall concept. When specialists work as a team, symbioses are discovered, with the target of treating the original cause.
