The jaw joint, also known as the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), is the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. It plays an important role in speaking, eating and contributes to facial expressions.


We will find a cure for pain

Most often, problems with the jaw joint are manifested by pain, cracking, peeling, skipping or difficult, even blocked opening of the mouth. 15-20 % of people suffer from these difficulties.

Jaw joint disease (TMJ) is divided into two main groups: arthrogenic, when joint structures are affected, and myogenic, when masticatory muscles are affected muscles.


The treatment process

For some problems, analgetics, thermotherapy, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, a home exercise program or the use of a biting splint are sufficient. If non-surgical methods do not help, we will consider possible surgical intervention.

Based on a profound initial examination we will propose an appropriate treatment under the guidance of leading expert and maxillofacial surgeon MUDr. et MUDr. Vladimír Machoň.

The jaw joints are small, but they are among the most stressed joints of the human body. Thanks to them, we open and close our mouths, so we can't do without them when speaking, eating, but they also affect our facial expressions. I am happy that thanks to modern devices I can restore a patient's smile without pain.
