Craniosacral Resonance and Dental Medicine

Craniosacral Resonance can be very effective in supporting stomatological procedures. It improves the chances of success, ensuring a holistic understanding of the dental system and its connection to the rest of the body.

 The positioning of the teeth is influenced by the position of the different bones of the oral cavity, the skull and the adjacent structures or increased tension in the soft tissues. This can be due to local conditions or be influenced by physical or emotional tensions and imbalances in the rest of the body. In any case, it has a direct impact on chronic malocclusion (imperfect contact between the upper and lower jawbone), leading to discomfort, pain or temporomandibular joint dysfunction.

Also, conversely, conditions affecting the oral cavity and teeth have a direct effect on the rest of the body. These may be caused by the extraction of teeth, dental sealants, artificial teeth, braces, prosthesis, bridges, missing teeth or having dentures or plates in place.

Craniosacral Resonance has proved to be beneficial before and after dental treatments.


Before Dental Treatment

A craniosacral practitioner can bring significant improvements in occlusion (the correct closing of jaws and teeth) and the position of teeth by adjusting the craniosacral system, thus ensuring that subsequent dental or orthodontic work is performed on balanced structures. This ensures the lasting effect of dental work and prevents negative side-effects (pain, for instance), while simultaneously contributing to the overall health and well-being of the individual. It is also noteworthy to mention that Craniosacral Resonance can result in psychological support as preparation for invasive dental treatments.


After Dental Treatment

Craniosacral Resonance is very effective as a support during and after orthodontic treatments. Often extensive dental procedures tend to affect the balance of the different structures in the mouth and neck, leading to feelings of discomfort or even pain and movement restrictions in different parts of the body. Craniosacral Resonance can be applied to restore balance to the patient’s mouth, hard palate, mandibular joints and cervical soft tissues. This will contribute to the improvement of the patient’s overall comfort and sense of well-being.
