The final month of the year is here, which for many marks the start of holiday plans and shopping trips. If you have problems with chronic headaches, these tasks can become challenging, as you can have a difficult time focusing because of discomfort. You may not realize it, but the problems you have could be traced to a problem with your dental function that has gone untreated. Our Katy, TX dental office can help you recover by providing treatment for problems with your bite function that can cause headaches, as well as issues with jaw and facial discomfort. Through disclusion time reduction therapy, we can help you change your bite for the better, reduce stress, and put an end to your headaches!
Can A Flawed Bite Really Be Responsible For Your Headaches?
What is the connection between bite problems and chronic headaches? If your bite motion is flawed, you can start to struggle with chronic pain as stress affects the nerves that control your jaw movement. These nerves are also responsible for sensation in your face, neck, and head, so these areas of your body can start to feel painful as a result of your troubles. This problem, often known as TMJ disorder, has affected many people. In addition to pain, it can also cause you to start grinding your teeth, which can damage them.
We Use Advanced Technology To Study Your Bite
Through a study of your bite with Tekscan pressure mapping, we can determine why you are struggling with a poor bite function, and recommend the appropriate treatment. Through bite equilibration, we can work with you on changing your bite alignment and reducing disparities in the application and release of pressure when you open and close your jaw. When these corrections occur, the reduction in jaw stress can help improve your quality of life, while also making you less susceptible to dental damage over time.
Providing Ongoing Support To Help You Maintain A Proper Bite
At regular dental exams, we can check on the condition of your bite, and your jaw, just as we can check on the condition of your teeth and gums. Through these ongoing visits, you can remain informed about your oral health. This can mean that problems like tooth decay are promptly address and restored, but it also means you enjoy preventive care that makes future issues less likely.
