Craniomandibular dysfunction refers to an often painful dysregulation of the masticatory apparatus, which is triggered by a disturbed interaction of various muscles, tendons and joints.

This symptom complex can include

  • Grinding of the teeth (bruxism)
  • Myoarthropathy (myofascial pain of the temporomandibular joint)
  • Disc displacement of the temporomandibular joint
  • trigeminal neuralgia
  • orofascial complaints
  • malocclusion

Interdisciplinary cooperation (dentist, orthodontist) is essential for this type of complaint.

Please do not confuse this clinical picture with craniosacral osteopathy, which is mentioned elsewhere. As you can read here, these are two completely different topics.
