The movements of the jaws are unique – like fingerprints or the structure of the retina. The condition of the dentofacial apparatus and changes in its work affect the whole organism. Not only chewing functions, but also speech, breathing, posture, and the ability to withstand stress depend on the displacement of the jaw.
Your treatment, restoration, implantation, occlusion correction and other issues with the teeth I carry out on the basis of a complete functional analysis of the dentition.
Imagine a perfect puzzle with a mix of countless pieces, verified to microns. So you can describe your future restoration, taking into account the configuration of each tooth, up to calculate the degree of inclination of each of the hillocks of its surface.
This is not all. The first stage of work is the installation of temporary restorations, a detailed fixation of changes and the adjustment of product layouts on the most up-to-date modern equipment until the problem is completely solved.
Professor Rudolf Slavichek is a world famous dentist-gnatologist, the author of the theory of sequential disocclusion, in which he examines the work of the dentofacial system in the context of the work of the whole organism. His concept of functional dentistry is based on the natural principles of the body. It reveals the functioning of individual teeth and the dentition, taking into account the closure of the teeth, the position of the joint of the jaw during communication, nutrition, sleep, and the state of muscle tone.
An analysis of the dentofacial system is carried out in the clinic using a complex of classical and unique technologies. As with treatment, every step is important here.
1) Primary diagnosis
I study the medical history in detail, ask questions and record the answers in the questionnaire. Every nuance matters.
2) Inspection and palpation
I examine the oral cavity and tactilely study the muscles of the cranio-mandibular system, face and neck. I take photographs according to the international survey protocol.
Based on the impressions made, a gypsum model of the jaws is made using a high-precision gypsum expansion system with gnatological quality control.
4) Digital condylography (axiography)
Allows you to copy and graphically represent the individual parameters of the jaw, joint, articular disc, the work of muscles and ligaments, norm and pathology.
A picture of the skull, which displays the features of the bite and the structure of the dentition.
6) Cephalometric analysis
Shows individual growth criteria and position of the structures of the dentition.
7) Functional analysis in the variator and articulator
The exact repetition of the movement of the jaw joint in three-dimensional space along the axes X, Y, Z.
Such a detailed approach allows us to study about 150-200 body parameters – this is 10 times more than with a standard dental examination. Only now we can talk about the personification of treatment, individual aesthetics and solutions that will be the best for you and for no one else.
