Gnathology is the part of dentistry that studies the relationships and functions between maxillary bones, teeth, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), muscles that control jaws movement, the nervous system that controls those muscles and the tongue, and the physiological and pathological correlations between all these components. In gnathological studies, CT analyzes of the TMJ are performed and all the symptoms deriving from a TMJ malfunction such as cervical problems, headaches, insomnia, buzzing in the ear, etc are treated.

The pain which felt by the patient with Gnathology related dysfunctions may be reach to the point that
could disrupt normal work and social life. The gnathological therapies consists of re-establishing normal
relations between the mandibular condyle, the articular disk and the glenoid fossa. For gnathological
therapies, mainly resin and metal bites are used. These bites reposition the jaw and produce a muscular
relaxation of the chewing muscles and all of the other muscles at the same time.

Once the interfering contractures have been eliminated using Bites, the stabilization therapy is carried out. These stabilization therapies can include occlusal corrections by apposition, subtraction or modification aids which can go from a simple selective grinding to eliminating interferences for restoring the correct heights of Jaw arches. These eliminating interferences includes onlays, crowns or edentulas such as prostheses. Finally, dental positions can be modified through orthodontics.

Nowadays, CT examination mathods are gold standard in gnathological dysfunctions. The CT examination in
gnathologic studies allows to detect the occlusal contacts between the two dental arches in a dynamic way,
displaying any interferences and the moment in which they occur. These analysis is displayed in real time,
archived and compared to subsequent examinations during and after therapy. The accuracy of the novel CT
examination method is extraordinary compare to traditional occlusion detection techniques. In our centre,
we use novel CT examination methods to detect gnathological dysfunctions and treat them with a range of
gnathological therapies.
