“The presence of a disorder at temporo-mandibular level can cause pain and functionality problems. We are ready to guide and educate about mandibular disorders and treat any condition.”
– Dr. Ela Bănică, founder Ortho Institute
Temporo-mandibular syndrome (ATM) involves a variety of symptoms and refers to complex articulation of the jaw, head neack and shoulders muscles, having a tight connection with dental occlusion (bite) and the nervous system.
Diagnosis can be a challenge, because many of the symptoms seem not to be connected between them or with a problem whose cause can be find at jaw level. Symptoms may vary between migraines, neck pains, ears problems, dizziness, facial pain and sudden fatigue.
