What are craniognathic disorders or temporomandibular disorders TMD?


Craniognathic or temporomandibular disorders are a group of musculoskeletal disorders involving the masticatory muscles, jaw joints, and adjacent anatomical features. They lead to pain in the facial area and occur more often in women. The etiology of temporomandibular disorders is multifactorial. The symptoms can be particularly severe and can negatively affect patient’s quality of life.

In our clinic we can relieve our patients from the uncomfortable symptoms of temporomandibular disorders, by applying the appropriate treatments.

Symptoms of temporοmandibular disorders and craniοfacial pain

The symptoms of temporomandibular disorders are categorized as types of craniofacial pain. Craniofacial pain is a broad term used for encompassing all pain in the face and head, including those caused by temporomandibular disorders. Craniofacial pain can include the following symptoms:

  • Muscular/facial pain
  • Reduced mouth opening, mandibular deviation on mouth opening. Locking of the jaw
  • Clicking or popping of the jaw
  • Nerve disorders
  • Ear pain, fullness or ringing
  • Headaches
  • Neck pain

What to avoid when suffering from Jaw pain


If you are unsure about your diagnosis and treatment, do not take any of the following "irreversible" therapeutic approaches:

  • Orthodontics or braces*·
  • Equilibration-grinding your teeth down to improve your bite*
  • Crowning the teeth to improve your bite*
  • Tooth extractions
  • Root canal therapies
  • Any type of surgery for TMJ and the jaw

* The American Dental Association refers to these procedures as “phase two therapy” and recommends that they only be performed AFTER successfully having “phase one therapy.”

Jaw pain treatment

The treatment of temporomandibular disorders in our clinic usually involves the construction of an intraoral splint. The intraoral splints we make are applied either to the upper jaw or to the lower jaw and are used either during the day or at bedtime depending on the type of problem and the etiology of the problem that each patient faces. In addition to the intraoral splints, other treatments that can be applied may be:

  • Jaw exercises
  • Moist heat application
  • Therapeutic injections to help unlock your jaw
  • Trigger point injections
  • TENS therapy
  • Botox injections
  • PRF Injections
  • Medications
