Do You have Bite Problems’

Bite Problems

Do you suffer from frequent headaches, jaw pain, difficulty chewing, loose teeth or worn down teeth’

If you answered yes to any of these questions than you; could be suffering from a condition known as Temporomandibular Dysfunction or TMD.

Occlusion describes how our teeth fit together, how we bite and chew, and the pressure we put on our jaw joints and muscles. If you have a malocclusion (bad bite), it can lead to all sorts of problems as well as a lot of unnecessary pain and suffering.

A simple exam by a well-informed dentist can identify your specific problem and then take steps to correct it. Often a simple removable appliance can help to diagnose the problem and the treatment could be as easy as a simple bite adjustment. The key to resolving the problem is the correct diagnosis.

Don’t suffer in silence; there is help out there for you.
