The holistic philosophy, considering the individual globally, says a new conception of the disease: it, that is, not limited to the simple treatment of its symptoms (which normally happens through real palliative medicines), but it identifies and understands the cause , the only properly be cured because the disease can be considered truly eradicated.
In recent years, it is also developing the so-called holistic dentistry, which integrates classical dentistry with the principles and practices of natural medicine, posturology, manual medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and homeopathy.
This new methodology is proving to be very useful for the treatment of the most common orthodontic problems, such as: the articulation disorders temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ), bruxism and clenching.
The holistic dentistry incomparable advantage consists in the fact that this, wanting to evaluate and safeguard the human being in its totality, allows you to search and to resolve, if present, possibly all the interdependencies existing between the main pathologies of the mouth and the pathologies other body structures.
To do this using methods, disciplines and medical knowledge integrated with the Integrated Medicine: this means that even the most simple intervention of holistic dentistry is designed taking into account all the postural factors connected to it and using the synergistic action of specialists postural.
Only in this way it will be possible to identify the priorities to be pursued and the concrete ways and means, finding the right balance between aesthetics and the healthy; all with the use of absolutely non-toxic materials.
Lately you hear a lot about, on television and in newspapers, the enormous influence that the occlusion and thus chewing exercise on human posture.
In recent times, the very deficient masticatory functional stimulation, mainly due to the fact that the neonatal age, it always occurs more frequently feeding with the bottle, and that, as a result, will primarily use soft foods, with few fibers (baby food, baby food, etc.), has led to the emergence of significant stomatognathic problems, found later in growth.
Thanks to the visit gnathological is possible to understand whether the patient accused annoyances (such as, for example, headache, facial pain, neck curtains, tinnitus, dizziness) may be caused by a malocclusion and the resulting postural problems.
The painful and functional syndromes that depend on a skull-mandibular joint disorder and the consequent malocclusion can affect not only the stomatognathic system (teeth, temporo-mandibular joint, ears, temples, head, etc ...) but also the spine in its traits cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral; (Shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, feet etc).
The causes can be varied, the most common are the following:
Often postural problems with severe symptoms, such as headaches, neck pain, dizziness, shoulder pain can result from dental occlusion. But issues affecting the most remote districts, such as the lumbar vertebrae or even the feet, can result from a mouth problem.
Indeed, as has been evidenced by more and more in-depth studies on the stomatognathic apparatus (occlusion-swallowing), there are clear correlations between the mouth and the rest of our body.
In particular, it is safe to say that every dental problem (from a banal caries not treated properly, the lack of teeth, from one of the teeth dysmorphic growth of judgment, to a pre-dental contact etc ...) altering significantly the mastication and causing an important bone mandibular displacement with respect maxillary bone, determines a pathological position of the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ), sending neuro-receptor altered information to the central nervous system.
In all these cases, a bite (from "bit") restores the proper occlusal function.
The bite is a small resin plaque, usually 1-2 millimeters thick, to be placed preferably lower dental arch, easily removable, which does not change permanently the teeth and their arrangement, simulating a new perfect set of teeth.
The specialist will indicate how long and at what times of day the bite will be used. Usually it must be taken at night, or, in view of the magnitude of the problem, during the day, for a few hours; When the problem, however, is to articulate origin (ATM) it is also preferable to use during physical activity.
Undertaken this therapy, you need to perform some periodic checks to monitor the overall normal postural changes that the use of bite causes.
The bite should be built completely tailored, because every mouth is different, must have a measurable degree of precision in the order of hundredths of a millimeter, and must be adjusted only by highly qualified and knowledgeable of the latest concepts in the field postural.
The bite can be, if properly implemented and used, a fundamental factor of importance in the field posturological, in the field of dentistry and in the resolution of multiple algic symptomatology.
