Dentists have found a way to ease the symptoms of Tourette's syndrome

From Tourette's syndrome affects both children and adults, but the exact statistical data are not available

We recently wrote about , which is not amenable to treatment — Tourette's syndrome. From this disease affects about 10 children out of 1,000 and they have involuntary twitching in the face, shouting swear words and uncontrollable movements of the hands. Scientists believe that the cause of this unusual disease lies in heredity but effective method of treatment they are still not invented. It would seem that the treatment of this disease must deal with the neurologists and physicians of allied specializations, but the method of combat the symptoms of Tourette's syndrome, to everyone's surprise, was invented by the Japanese dentists.

Typically, today, the treatment of Tourette syndrome represents a blockage of the "happiness hormone" dopamine with all kinds of drugs because this hormone is secreted especially in patients active. Also some doctors prescribe to patients and psychotherapy, but these methods of dealing with involuntary tics do not help to cope with the symptoms until the end. However, the method, invented by Japanese dentists of the Dental clinic at Osaka University, was able to significantly reduce the amount of speech and motor tics in 22 patients.

How to get rid of Tourette's syndrome?

The Volunteers were asked to wear a dental splint that dentists usually prescribe for straightening crooked teeth or treatment of grinding teeth during sleep. To the surprise of the researchers, immediately after putting on the tires, people with Tourette's syndrome immediately became calm and almost pulled a face. Before putting on the tires, the volunteers assessed the frequency of involuntary ticks on a 60-point scale by an average of 15 points. After putting on the tires they lowered the average score up to 8 points.

by the Way, recently dentists the first time in history

Looking at these figures it may seem that the symptoms of Tourette's syndrome weakened not as much as I would like. However, in the video below the difference between the frequency of involuntary ticks before and after putting on the tyre just catches the eye. It is possible to notice that patients almost immediately find peace and their faces relax.

Dentists noted that the younger the patient was, the better was the result. What exactly is associated calming effects of dental splints, they still can't explain. At the moment, they have two assumptions. The first is that soothing effect — a phenomenon when the patient inspires himself that helps him to get rid of the disease. The second lies in the potential impact of the tires on the nerve endings, which send inhibitory signals to the insular region of the cerebral hemispheres of the brain that are particularly active in people with Tourette's syndrome.
