Read About the Conditions Related to a poor Dental Orthopedic relationship
Multiple research studies have shown that TMJ/jaw dysfunction is associated with a large number of comorbidities. Alread Fonder, DDS, in his book The Dental Physician (1976) had about two pages of TMJ-associated medical disorders that he found to routinely disappear once the bite was corrected. Many studies have demonstrated that TMJ is associated with very high medical utilization rates (i.e. TMJ occurs in conjunction with a very large number of medical conditions occurring at a very high rate). Yet, TMJ is seldom suspected by the physician or examined for when a patient develops multiple medical conditions. We now know that it is by way of elevated "substance P" from a compromised jaw relationship that causes many of the associated illnesses.
