Services offered by the Dental Clinics of Albania Dent
The maxillofacial surgeon from Albania Dent treats patients who suffer from facial pain and malocclusion, who have suffered facial trauma, suffer from a tumor or from jaw bone cysts, or present functional or aesthetic pathological conditions of the maxillo area -faciale.
The temporomandibular joint, the small joint that connects the jaw to the skull and is related to the chewing muscles, allows the mandibular movements during chewing, swallowing or while speaking.
The disorders of this joint are relatively common and present a variety of symptoms; click (click) during chewing or at the end of a yawn, the impression of not being able to close or open the mouth completely or do it by experiencing pain, earache, headache.
the consequence of a trauma
the excessive contact of the teeth due to the habit of grinding them bruxism, especially during the night.
the displacement or dislocation of the disc between the jaw and the temporal bone cavity, its dislocation produces the typical "click", the trigger that accompanies the closing and opening movement of the mouth, which in turn can be sign of a laxity of the congenital or acquired ligaments. In the disc, a perforation can also be developed, which produces a typical sound during movement. Other conditions of traumatic origin or rheumatoid arthritis can push the parts of the joint to merge, preventing proper jaw movement.
The stress caused by an excessive and prolonged contact of the teeth between them, as happens for example in bruxism, can produce in the mandibular muscles a pain very similar to that caused by the temporomandibular dysfunction. On the other hand, patients present a combination of muscular and joint problems, and it is not by chance that the diagnosis of temporomandibular dysfunction can be complicated and require different diagnostic procedures.
The treatment of this dysfunction varies from dental care conservative to the application of plaques occlusalthe to unpack and redistribute the loads at the level of intra-articular, to the more complex surgery, which is necessary in the presence of an evident joint damage or when non-surgical treatment has not been successful. The surgery can take place in arthroscopy with a method identical to that used in orthopedics to inspect and treat the joints most as large as the knee, or the repair of the damaged tissue is performed with a surgical approach directly.
