Who is a Gnathologist?
He is the professional who relates the different aspects of Skull-Mandibular Dysfunction.
He tries to understand if this problem could be mainly linked to temporomandibular joint problems, and/or to the absence of some teeth, r to inadequate prosthetic restorations (worn or “badly made” removable bridges or prostheses), or to incorrect posture, non-orthodontic therapy performed correctly, or to a condition of stress or particularly high emotional tension or to flawed habits.
