Many times it is thought that what concerns a foot, back, arm … or any part of our body, confined to that particular district of the body, or that however the disorder is related solely to the particular tissue or apparatus. This is not true !! The body is like a machine (not by chance, for example, the correlation between medicine and technology is increasingly present). In fact, it was quiet to think of the body in its entity as a large computer whose circuits are neurons and nerves, and which software is bones and muscles .. embedded through some chips and cables that are tendons and ligaments.
Please apologize for the similarity .. given the era in which we live and the ever closer correlation between these two types of science … the overlap is natural.
Any, coming back to us … WHAT IS THE POSTURAL CHAIN, WHICH HAS THE ORIGIN, WHICH YOUR REPRESENTS?
Meanwhile, the stomatognatic apparatus (chewing) affects all tissues: neural, vascular, bone, muscular and connective tissue. They aggregate together to form the organs and enter into synergy for the constitution of the apparatus.
If even one of the constituent elements of the stomatognathic system does not work, its entire function is compromised.
FABRICS IN THE MASTICATOR APPLIED
Vases and nerves flow and sprout bones, muscles and teeth. In this way the organs of the mouth give shape, vitality, receptivity and movement, not only the use of the teeth, but also the true mastication and articulation of the word … all gestures that require the intervention of different joints.
WHAT ARE THE ARTICULATIONS CHARACTERIZING THE MASTICATOR APPARATUS
Mainly the swollen (a fixed / fibrous joint that articulates the tooth to the alveolar bone of the dental arch) and the ATM (ie the temporomandibular joint, which allows us to open and close the mouth).
WHAT ARE THE MAIN MUSCLES OF THE STOMATOGNATIC APPARATE
Well, the muscles of the apparatus are so many. We never think about it, but: let's open our mouth; we stumble; smile; chew; we extrude tongue or lips; we swell cheeks … we can really do so many things!
… all these “optionals”, of course, require complicated management!
Gradually we can distinguish:
… and we always remember that:
Because a muscle moves must always be innervated;
* It is necessary for the muscles to attach to the bones that move when the muscle itself contracts
SYNTHING: MUSCULO-SCHELETRIC EQUIPMENT; VASCULAR; NEURAL
As we have said, the organism expects organicity, so synergy between the various parts that make up it; but what happens when one or more parts of it do not work as they should?
And, more specifically, what happens to the whole organism when there are defects in the components of the chewing apparatus?
It does not seem possible, yet, for example, if we have frequent headaches, cervical disorders, back pain … these can be frequent symptoms related to dysfunctions or defective constipation of the oral cavity.
So many times it can happen to refer to neurologists, physiatrists, rheumatologists and (even more often) otorines; but being a specialist.
However, there are very difficult situations to be diagnosed separately in particularly appropriate situations; for this it is much easier for the dental practitioner (sometimes with the aid of an RX or a TAC) to detect these effects rather than other medical specialists
THE MOST FREQUENTLY DAMAGED PROBLEMS TO THE POSTAL CHAIN
-MALPOSITIONING / DENTAL ASYMMETRY
-MALOCCLUSION OF SECOND AND THIRD GRADE
– INFECTIONS (which may affect the nerves or vessels)
