PAIN OF THE TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT,
ALGETIC DYSFUNCTIONAL SYNDROME OF THE TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT
(Cliking and articular pain of jaws)
That corresponds to a settling of the temporomandibular joint leading an intra- and peri-articular dysfunction bringing into play the entirety of the osteo-articular apparatus. This pinch can be due to a physiological aging of the joint, like arthritis, but also to dental occlusion disorders (dental prosthesis), to a cranio-cervical traumatism, with bruxism (jaw squeezing) which is the reactive reflex mechanism to this dysfunction. There is often also a cervical origin by minor intervertebral disorder of the vertebrae C2-C3-C4 involving sometimes a postural disorder of global statics with deviation of the dental articulation, physiological axis are completely unbalanced.
We can observe some pain when the patient open the jaws, during the mastication or during a yawn with a feeling of articular cliking due to the condyle and meniscus premature usury (arthritis), "like in the knee joint".
To avoid the occlusal orthesis (which is the very long and demanding conventional treatment), Percutaneous Hydrotomy, with mesochelation, enable hydration, micronutrition and peripheral calcium diminution of the bone mesh. It provides a reset in suspension of the jaw for a better articular "sliding" of the temporomandibular joint.
