Examining And Improving Your Bite Function

Could your bite function benefit from corrective care? When your joints do not move in alignment, you can feel stress in the joints and muscles that will cause you to experience difficulties with different forms of daily discomfort. In addition to feeling the problem in your face and jaw, it can cause you to have regular headaches, and it can cause discomfort in your neck and shoulders as well. Fortunately, your Katy, TX dentist’s office is prepared to help you. With the right imaging technology, we provide information on jaw movement that can lead to personalized care and relief from ongoing discomfort!

Is Your Poor Bite Function Causing Problems With Your Oral Health?

If you have issues with your bite alignment and movement, you can experience problems with discomfort that grow worse as time passes. There are different reasons why these alignment changes occur. When they do, it can make simple movements like biting, chewing, and speaking difficult, and it can lead to headaches, jaw and facial pain, and teeth grinding. The good news is that with a better understanding of your current alignment and movement issues, we can provide an effective treatment solution. We can capture information on your jaw movement with digital pressure mapping technology.

Using Technology To Evaluate Your Bite

By using Tekscan pressure mapping technology to evaluate your bite, we can better understand your issues with unbalanced movement and look at what adjustments you require. From there, we can discuss treatment that is based around your specific needs. In some cases, the right approach is one that includes dental work to make sure you do not have problems putting pressure on certain teeth.

Treating Problems With Teeth That Affect Your Dental Function

Plans to restore your jaw movement can include restorative services for teeth that are not contributing properly to your bite. Through the placement of dental crowns on teeth that are undersized, damaged, or in poor health, we can provide important functional improvements. We can do so while still prioritizing the preservation of your smile, as options for care include services that lead to the placement of custom dental crowns.
