Problems With Your Bite Alignment Can Hurt Your Oral Health

You might be surprised at the way different oral health issues can intrude on your ability to maintain a properly aligned bite. Crooked teeth, dental damage, and unaddressed tooth loss can all change the way you bite down. If your bite problem is not addressed, it can eventually lead to further trouble for your dental health. Your Katy, TX dentist can work with you on identifying problems with your bite, and finding possible causes for this issue. By using advanced tools to measure your bite equilibration, or the evenness of your bite, trouble can be more easily detected, and a plan for improvement can be formed.

Your Misaligned Bite Can Affect Your Jaw Joints, Your Teeth, And Your Quality Of Life

If you do nothing to correct a poorly aligned bite, you can start to notice unpleasant effects. You can find that certain teeth are weaker simply because they face more strain when you bite and chew food. You can also start to develop problems with pain because of TMJ dysfunction. Ignoring these matters can lead to the situation becoming worse, and may make treatment a longer and more involved process.

Addressing Bite Alignment As Part Of A Larger Plan To Restore Your Smile Health

Addressing a problem with your bite can be one important step in many when you plan a full mouth reconstruction. If you have struggled with a history of poor dental health, improvement may involve orthodontic treatment, restorations for individual problem teeth, and work to address the pain caused by TMJ dysfunction. For people who have longstanding teeth troubles, a full mouth reconstruction can be a major, meaningful improvement to their quality of life.
