 The most modern diagnostic and therapeutic procedures

Problems with the jaw joint are widespread. In Germany up to 4 million people suffer from numerous symptoms which can be caused by a misalignment of the jaw joints. Do you also suffer from jaw joint problems and all the diseases related? Smileforever offers you a comprehensive analysis of the chewing apparatus and an adequate form of treatment for the correction of existing misalignments.

Jaw joint problems and its impact

The whole body can be affected symptomatically as a result of a misaligned jaw because the masticatory apparatus is closely connected with the human musculoskeletal system via muscles and nerves. Nevertheless, most people know little that jaw joint problems can be caused by headaches, tension in the shoulder area, dizziness and tinnitus up to problems of hips and knees. As a consequence misalignments often remain unnoticed and therefore untreated. Patients suffer without any known cause.

Possible symptoms from jaw joint problems

  • Bruxism
  • Earaches
  • Headaches, Migraine
  • Backache
  • Dizziness
  • Tinnitus
  • Shoulder and neck pain
  • Hip and knee pains
  • Vision disorders
  • Depressions
  • Snoring 


In order to diagnose jaw joint problems a manual functional and structural analysis is carried out. The dentist scans the jaw joints and the different masticatory and head muscles.


For the treatment of jaw joint problems, splints for teeth are made in order to correct misalignments and to put the jaw back in a proper position.
