Addressing Poor Bite Alignment Can Help With Migraines

While you may put little thought into the movements of your jaw, problems with your bite alignment can be a serious concern. People sometimes remain unaware that their application and release of force is uneven due to problems with their movement, or issues with their teeth. Even if you are unaware that poor bite alignment is an issue, you can experience its effects in the form of painful TMJ problems, chronic migraines, and other types of discomfort. Your Katy, TX dentist’s office is ready to help you identify bite problems that can cause migraines and other uncomfortable problems. In addition to restoring your bite function, we can take on related oral health issues through restorative dental work.

Why Would My Bite Alignment Cause Me To Experience Migraines?

If your bite is poorly aligned, you can unknowingly put your jaw joints and muscles under excess stress. This can negatively affect your trigeminal nerve, which is responsible for sensations in your face, head, and neck in addition to controlling the movements of your jaw. As the problem persists, you can also do damage to certain teeth because you are overworking them.

Using DTR Therapy To Change Your Bite Function

Through DTR therapy, we can help patients understand what is wrong with their bite function, and we can offer corrective work to alleviate their problems. Over time, you can enjoy relief from chronic stress as therapy helps you even out your bite function. This can help with headaches, jaw pain, teeth grinding, and many other concerns!

Additional Measures We Can Take To Improve Your Dental Function

If you struggle with a poorly aligned bite, it could be due to unresolved oral health issues. One issue that can affect your dental function is the alignment of your teeth – if your have crooked teeth, it can make a natural bite motion harder for you to perform. We can discuss orthodontic treatment, even treatment with Invisalign, to help you. We can also provide restorative work to make biting and chewing easier if you have damaged or weakened teeth. Restoring teeth with dental crowns can help you bite without discomfort, and it can protect vulnerable teeth that are more likely to experience health issues.
