The team is able to propose you occlusal solutions.
Temporomandibular disorders all have one perpetuating and/or causative factor in common: an excessive motor activity of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve, that is, excessive occluding of the teeth.
Four factors dictate the presenting signs and symptoms:
--Intensity of the occluding;
--Frequency of the oc cluding;
--Duration of the occluding;
--Degree of condylar translation and direction of the pull on the condyle by the lateral pterygoid during the occluding event .
Of those four factors, the most significant is the intensity of the event. The ideal occlusal splint cannot reduce the intensity of nocturnal clenching, in fact, it allows clenching to exceed voluntary maximum.
That's why a consultation of diagnosis has to be done. An occlusal analysis of the disorder will be done if the disorder is global; that's the only way to propose the appropriate treatment. One of those treatment is shown on the video bellow.
