Is Malocclusion Causing Your Headache?

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry, TMJ

TMJ Treatment In Addison TX Are you an Addison TX adult who suffers with chronic headaches? Have you tried Imitrex, diet adjustments, and chiropractic treatment? Perhaps the cause is not stress-induced tension, spine alignment or eyestrain. Maybe the culprit is right under your nose.

Bite misalignment or malocclusion is a common Addison TX problem that often goes undetected. Nature intended the front teeth to fit slightly forward from the lower teeth. With a perfect bite, the molars fit together like precision gears.

Malocclusion can cause headaches, tooth loosening, tooth fracture, and in extreme cases, difficulty chewing, speaking or breathing.

Clear braces are an effective solution for most bite problems. Braces not only move teeth, they can also correct the position and function of the joints (like the TMJ), muscles and bones in the jaw. In cases of extreme malocclusion, jaw surgery in Addison may be necessary.
