Jaw Joint Problems ve 


The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. Disorders in the joint directly affect chewing, reducing the patient's quality of life. It is manifested by problems such as limitation in mouth opening, clicking, clicking sound from the joint, chin shifting to one side when opening the mouth, pain in the ear area during chewing, and chin entrapment when yawning. The joint is not in the position it should be due to incompatibilities between the lower jaw and the upper jaw, crooked teeth, developmental problems, one-sided chewing or wrong chewing habits caused by missing teeth, and it appears as the joint problems we have just mentioned. A treatment plan is prepared to eliminate the cause of the discomfort.

Another thing that causes discomfort in the joint area is the stress-related clenching of the teeth. In daily life, teeth grinding during sleep usually manifests itself with pain in the joint area and chewing muscles. In order to prevent the problem of teeth grinding in accordance with the patient's mouth and teeth structure, night plaque can be made. Especially if your teeth grind at night while sleeping, night plaque will alleviate the complaints. This treatment can also be supported by the application of botox to the chewing muscles to reduce these forces on the teeth that are under more intense stress.
