Bite Therapy in Aurora, ON
Is a bad bite interfering with your ability to speak and chew? Misalignment between the jaw and teeth can result in excessive wear and tear and several other problems.
Problems Caused Due to Poor Bite
Malocclusion can be caused by several factors, including genetics, overcrowded teeth, poor or crooked dentition, missing back teeth or failing dental work. Our trained dentist near you offers effective TMJ treatment to help correct bite problems and restore harmony between the teeth and jaw. Aside from aesthetic issues, a poor bite can also result in damage to your teeth and gums and temporomandibular joint.
Many patients may experience migraines, restricted jaw movement, clicking or popping sounds when biting down, or sore teeth. You may also find it painful or uncomfortable to laugh or yawn. The uneven distribution of bite force also leads to overworked teeth, increasing the likelihood of fractures and gum problems. Missing posterior teeth can cause jaw bone loss and cause what is known as a ‘deep bite’.
If you suffer from a poor bite or experience discomfort while chewing, please contact Aurora Dentistry for an evaluation.
