Migraines can derail your day by putting you through severe pain. One reason people sometimes struggle with migraines and headaches is that they have unresolved problems with TMJ disorder due to bite issues. At our Katy, TX dental practice, we can determine if your problems might be rooted in TMJ problems, and determine how to best correct bite issues that might be agitating your jaw joints and muscles. To effectively understand what is happening, we can use advanced technology to measure the force you apply when you bite down, and work on corrections that reduce jaw stress through Disclusion Time Reduction therapy. If your problems with your bite are linked to other oral health issues, we can discuss the appropriate restorative dental treatment in order to help you.
Treating Issues With TMJ Disorder Can Improve Your Quality Of Life
TMJ disorder can have several negative impacts on your daily life. If you have this problem, you can have a more difficult time biting, chewing, and speaking. This can be due to limited movement, or because of consistent pain when you move your jaw. You can also suffer headaches, or even migraines, because of TMJ disorder. When the problem also includes issues with teeth grinding, there is a chance you can damage your teeth seriously enough to affect your appearance. If this has occurred, you and your dentist can discuss cosmetic dental work.
Undergoing Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy
Disclusion Time Reduction therapy is arranged when a person’s flawed bite is hurting their oral health and well-being. After analyzing your bite, your dentist can work with you on correcting your jaw motion in order to make your application of force more even. By addressing imbalances, it becomes possible to alleviate stress on your joints and muscles.
Oral Health Problems Can Interfere With Your Bite Function
Sometimes, it becomes difficult for a person to use an appropriate bite motion because they have issues with their oral health. This could be a problem with certain teeth that are undersized, damaged, or otherwise less capable of providing biting and chewing support. It could also be due to poor dental alignment. If these problems are identified as contributing to your bite troubles, we can plan the appropriate treatment, or treatments. A dental crown can offer meaningful support to any tooth that is not effectively offering support when you bite and chew. For issues with poor dental alignment, we can discuss corrections with discreet Invisalign appliances.
