Collaboration between Osteopath and Dentist

The source is malocclusion!

The collaboration between the dentist and the osteopath is very important, not only in cases of orthodontics but in any service that involves occlusal modifications, such as dental prostheses or extractions. There is a strong link between posture and occlusion. The occlusion determines the position of the mandible in space. This position affects the posture through the muscle and fascial chains that cover the entire body from head to toe.
An asymmetric position of the mandible, no matter how small, causes the contraction of certain muscles generating a change in posture, itself the source of problems not only to the spine but also to the head (stiff neck, headache, backache , etc.) when the jaw moves to the body must adapt. In the same way when the body will move the jaw to compensate. The relationship between the body and the jaw is then bijective and must be assessed in its entirety and reciprocity.
Any intervention that involves occlusal changes involves a postural adjustment. The osteopath intervention can facilitate this adaptation or can correct the hassles related to it. The osteopathy is particularly useful in cases of orthodontic treatment, reconstruction of the occlusion or to treat a joint load problems temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ). The osteopath work optimizes and accelerates the orthodontic treatment, can help to minimize the consequences of a bad occlusion, reconditioning the ATM to a physiological function.
A close collaboration between the dentist and the osteopath is therefore necessary to overcome a problem whose origin resides in a bad occlusion.
