Those who suffer from CMD, i.e. craniomandibular dysfunction, often do not have it easy. Teeth grinding, toothache, severe headaches and tension are just some of the many consequences of CMD. Those affected are often severely impaired in their everyday lives, as simple things like chewing or speaking can result in severe pain. Dental treatment can alleviate the symptoms of craniomandibular dysfunction, but to treat the consequences such as tension and resulting pain, it is also advisable to consult a physiotherapist

Possible causes of craniomandibular dysfunction

  • Functional disorders in the temporomandibular joint 
  • Bad posture of the shoulder and neck region 
  • Malposition of the head 
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Stress 

These are just some of the many causes of CMD. It is important to treat craniomandibular dysfunction early to prevent consequences such as teeth grinding, toothache, tension and pain in the neck and head area. So don't wait too long and get treatment from your dentist and a physiotherapist
