Craniomandibular dysfunctions (CMD)

Craniomandibular dysfunctions are issues of the so-called chewing or masticatory system – i.e. the interaction of teeth, jaw joints and chewing muscles. They express themselves, for example, in form of teeth grinding (Bruxism) or various jaw joint problems such as jaw cracking. If no effective dental treatment is taken over a longer period, functional disorders in chewing can lead to damages of the tooth substance or to chronic pain in the jaw joints.

By orthodontic correction of possibly causally existing misaligned teeth and the use of grinding-protective splints such as the so-called Michigan mouthguard, chewing disorders can be treated effectively by your dentists in Zug.

In addition, we work together with various physiotherapists in the Zug region, who specialize in the treatment of painful jaw joints and muscles, resp. of tensions (often with radiating pain) of the masticatory system.
