Your Jaw and Skull

.

Here is where you get an understanding of the mechanics of your body e.g. how a filling that is too high in a tooth can upset the delicate balance of your bite which in turn may create symptoms elsewhere in your body.

A very important part in this balance is your Temporo-Mandibular-Joint (TMJ) which helps you move your jaw up and down.

The TMJ is no doubt affected by almost every other part of your body hence can cause all kinds of problems such as head ache, tooth ache, neck or shoulder pain and even back pain or hamstring problems, actually affecting your whole body.

If you have pain in the this joint or it doesn´t function as it should whether it´s due to muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels or other associated tissues, this is called Temporo-Mandibular-Disorder or –Dysfunction.

The TMJ is the headquarter of the body´s balance mechanism, and if the jaw doesn´t close properly because of maloccluded teeth, the balance mechanism is forced to adapt.

Due to this constant stress the brain is pumping out lots of noradrenalin and serotonin which sensitizes the autonomic nervous system, making you vulnerable to any other stressors like bad diet or emotional problems hence depression could be linked to TMJ dysfunction.

Here is where you get an understanding of the mechanics of your body. For example how a high filling in your tooth can upset the delicate balance of your bite which in turn may create symptoms elsewhere in your body. These symptoms will be difficult to resolve until you are seen by someone who understands the nature of such conditions.

A very important part, if not the most important, in this balance is your Temporo Mandibular Joint (TMJ). This joint of the jaw helps you move your jaw up and down, left and right, forward and backwards. You have one on each side, working in unison. Only the mandible, the lower part of your jaw, that moves during those motions. . . .

.

The TMJ is no doubt affected by almost every other part of your body hence can cause all kinds of problems such as head ache, tooth ache, neck or shoulder pain and even back pain or hamstring problems.

If you have pain in this joint or it doesn´t function as it should whether this is due to muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels or other associated tissues, you are suffering from a Temporo-Mandibular-Disorder or –Dysfunction. It even involves your neck, your back, shoulders and even your legs, well actually your whole body.

.

Some say, the TMJ is the headquarter of the body´s balance mechanism. If the jaw doesn´t close properly because of mal occluded teeth, the balance mechanism is forced to adapt.

.

.

However, because it´s under constant stress, the brain is pumping out lots of hormones like noradrenalin and serotonin. This sensitizes the autonomic nervous system, making the patient vulnerable to any other stressors like bad diet or emotional problems. So depression could be linked to TMJ dysfunction.

TOOTH ACHE

.

.

There are few types of pain that can make life such a constant misery as toothache.  Only if you have experienced this kind of pain yourself will you understand this statement.

Toothache is generally recognised as pain experienced around a single tooth, several teeth, the gum area or the jaws.  Although the main causes are likely to be dental problems, there are instances when the condition may originate in the temporo-mandibular joint, the ’chewing’ muscles or somewhere else in the body.

.

.

Unfortunately for humans and animals there are many different causes of toothache. They can range from a problem with the tooth itself or an underlying deterioration in the gum to a blocked colon, a kidney condition or many other physical imbalances.

.

In the book you will discover twenty ways to deal with tooth pain such as:

Use an ice cube, Colloidal silver, Garlic, Cloves and Whisky.

Some homeopathic remedies for tooth pain:

Arnica montana – Arnica is THE homeopathic remedy before and after every surgical procedure

Chewing and Your Bite

Chewing and Your Bite

.

Chewing properly is only possible if your teeth are well-aligned and your chewing joints (Temporo-Mandibular-Joint: TMJ) function well.

The TMJ is one of the most important joints in your whole body.

If it doesn´t work as it should you might experience all sorts of pain.

From clicking sounds and limited opening which makes chewing very difficult to head aches, neck and shoulder pain and even hip problems and leg length differences.

It is important that all restorations (fillings, Inlays, crowns, bridgework….) are fitted correctly into these very delicate systems and do not cause any interference with other parts of your body.

Only if you are able to chew properly you will digest your food properly.
