Gnathology is a field in dentistry that deals with the masticatory system and it’s disorders. Dental Gnathologists Chryssa Papagianni and Marisol Reyes treats clients with different symptoms, including:
- Pain in the masseter / jaw joints
- Impairment (eg limitation of the mouth opening)

It is most likely that you are being referred to a Gnathologist by your dentist because of pain and/or dysfunction in your masticatory system, or problems with your teeth.
During the intake consultation you will discuss your (pain) complaints with the Dentist Gnathologist and the Dentist Gnathologist will examine this. There is an extensive research into the functioning of your masticatory system and / or teeth. Based on this study, the Dentist Gnathologist will discuss the diagnosis and treatment plan with you. The report of the examination and the proposed treatment plan will also be discussed with your referring dentist.
