Osteopaths, dentists, and posturology...

The joint work of the osteopath and the dentist is necessary in order to carry out a dental or orthodontic treatment because they go hand in hand.


Posture depends (in part) on good dental occlusion. Osteopaths can easily show you by inserting a piece of paper between the two jaws that it completely changes the entire muscle tone. 


It is therefore essential to have consistent follow-ups withyour osteopath when doing dental work, so as to ensure that the treatments are not doing any harm.

Conversely, osteopaths must in some cases call upon dentists to carry out work that may be detrimental to a patient's full recovery. For example, in the case of dental problems, decongestion of the psoas muscle on a long-term basis is very complicated and cannot be treated by an osteopath alone. 


Generally, if the dental occlusion has not been corrected, osteopathic treatments will not last. This is because muscles, ligaments and joints are forced to constantlyadapt by contracting and stretching in order to compensate for the postural imbalance.


To counteract this, the joint work of an osteopath and a dentist can adjust the occlusion with the creation of a dental tray. This solution will therefore improve results in regards to osteopathy, creating longer-lasting and better quality treatments. 


Ultimately, the patient will encounter several practitioners to aid in their present well-being but also to ensure their future well-being. This reduces considerably the installation of diseases and/or postural problems that are often taken care of too late and require surgical interventions.
