TMD, Car Crash, “low impact” and Disability and Exam

Published April 30, 2018

Dear Professionally Integrated,

Here is a study that shows car crashes, even "low impact" crashes, causes jaw dysfunction as well as damage to the upper cervical spine, and how the jaw correlates to the upper spine. This study also shows how "low impact" caused significant damage to the occupants. I have used this study to present to my patients and dentists in the area to increase our referrals. This paper also gives us a TMD test to easily do in our office for further documentation and information.

 

 

 

Purpose. To estimate the prevalence of jaw symptoms and signs . . .
