Why Jaw Alignment Is Important
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ), or jaw joint, is one of the most complex joints in the human body. Misalignment of this joint can cause pain and discomfort. Your dental health, physical health, self-esteem, and overall wellbeing can all suffer as a result.
Your jaw and teeth work best when they are in the correct alignment. Your top teeth should sit slightly outside of your bottom teeth when biting down.
Overbite Vs. Underbite
Incorrect jaw alignment is when the top and bottom teeth do not fit together correctly. A misaligned jaw usually results either in an overbite (upper teeth that protrude too far) or an underbite (bottom teeth that sit in front of the top teeth).
Symptoms Of Misaligned Jaw
You may not even realize that many of the symptoms and problems that you’re experiencing are the result of a misaligned bite. If you or your child are experiencing any of the following symptoms, an appointment in our office will diagnose whether or not your jaw is the problem.
- Pain / Stiffness When Chewing
- Face / Jaw Pain (Even When The Jaw Is Still)
- Breathing Issues (e.g. Mouth Breathing Without Nasal Congestion)
- Speech Issues – Pain when speaking or an inability to make certain sounds.
- Sleep Issues – Pain/breathing problems when lying on your stomach or side.
Benefits Of Bite Correction
Our orthodontists are trained to recognize an improper bite. If problems do exist, we will know and can provide you with the best options for correcting the issue. Braces, for example, may help you look and feel your best.
