A speciality of dentistry that looks at the stomatognathic system i.e. the teeth, the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and the musculature of the system.
The position of the teeth, the function of the TMJ and the muscles of mastication are related intimately - and any deviation from physiologic harmony can lead to pain e.g. head ache, tooth ache, and ear (!) ache.
