Improving chewing comfort, managing dental or muscular pain due to over-clenching of the teeth, grinding or temporomandibular clicking, whether or not related to stress, are all elements taken into account in functional dentistry treatments.

The temporomandibular joints (TMJs) allow the jaw to open and close smoothly during chewing and speaking. Their function depends on the teeth and muscles. If one of these components is deficient, functional problems can occur.

The treatments we offer can be accompanied by self-management techniques, physiotherapy, the use of an occlusal splint or any other prescription in order to regain optimal masticatory comfort.
