The lower jaw "hinges" against the side of the head by two temporomandibular joints (TMJ). Inside the TMJ is a disc composed of cartilage.

TMJ disorders can cause pain, “ clicking” sounds, inability to open, locking of the jaw or headaches.

The i-Cat is an excellent tool to image a troubled TMJ joint.

Treatments depend on the diagnosis, but soft diet, TMJ splints, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy or surgery maybe necessary.

Arrange a stem-cell-implant

News & Events

Stem cells are cells found in most, if not all, multi-cellular organisms. They are characterized by the ability to renew themselves through mitotic cell division and differentiating into a diverse range of specialized cell types.

A research suggests that coating dental implants with a synthetic bone material prior to implantation allows such implant to become incorporated much more successfully into the jaw, leading to smiles all round.

The results of experiments that focused on 'nanostructures'demonstrated enhanced bone response to dental implants as soon as 4 weeks after implant placement.
