The joint of the lower jaw with the head is called “TMJ” (temporomandibular joint). Incorrect positioning of the mandibular bone in the joint can cause a syndrome known under the name of Costen’s syndrome.
Many people suffer from vertigo, problems in their ears, or their face or shoulders or back, without knowing why. Today it is well known that these areas “trigger zones” can arise from a malfunctioning of the temporomandibular joint connected to a late or early malocclusion.
Bioaesthetic orthodontics is based on the combination between the biological shape of the teeth and the occlusal function. The combination of the shape of the teeth with the function maintains a stable occlusion. This most often proves necessary with adults who want to straighten their teeth which have suffered from wear due to use.
