Osteopathy is a treatment method for detection and removal of mobility limitation in different body structures, its tissues and organs. These limitations can cause incorrect functioning of the body and in case of prolonged existence can cause irreversible changes in it.
Until recently in stomatology osteopathy was not fully used but after knowledge of occlusion, jaw correlation, bite and between alveolar high were expanded every stomatologist begin to think about influence of prosthetics (prosthetic constructions) on condition of organism. That is why, among modern stomatologists osteopathy became more interesting as new method of prevention and treatment, characterized by organism as united and all-in-one system. Additional factor, that contributed development of stomalogical osteopathy were increased complications after treatment that at first glance looked wright. Pain, malfunction of temporomandibular joint is the main expression of such complications.
Earlier headache, dizziness, noise in the ears and laid down ears, pain in the neck and lower back, facial pain were not associated with complications after stomatological treatment, because could emerge several months after the treatment at the stomatologist. However, in recent years, thanks to the popularity of osteopathy method in diagnostic and treatment and development of functional research methods in stomatology, this fact becomes apparent.
Posturology is study of the vertical position of the body and methods of its holding up and one of the most important concepts in osteopathy. Temporomandibular joints are one of postural detectors that have influence on postural balance and cause its changes. That is why dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint, or violation of bite, affect the functioning of the jaw in general. There are postural tests to determine types of dysfunctions and finding place of primary problem. Most often there are few such places.
Treatment accompanied by the osteopath significantly increases the efficiency of orthodontic treatment. Previous osteopathic preparation for orthodontic treatment and further support in treatment, or just accompanying correction. In case of accompanying correction visit to the osteopath takes place within a certain period after orthopedic manipulations (brackets fixation, changing arcs). This will remove most effectively negative voltage that can be caused by orthodontic intervention. Osteopathy in stomatology expends boundaries of understanding of multiple problems and helps to resolve them effectively, that makes life of the patients more comfortable.
