Do you suffer from headaches & neck aches? Do you find you have to see the emergency dentist, because you break your teeth regularly? You might have bite problems/bite issues.
If you are able to put more pressure on your back teeth this can cause muscles and teeth to be over used and this can cause tension headaches and cracked/fractured teeth.
Excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching – also called bruxism – is a common problem. It can damage the teeth and cause a number of different painful symptoms associated with the jaw and affect the overall day to day quality of life. Collectively, these symptoms are often referred to as Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD).
Our knowledgeable dentists are able to examine the health and functionality of your whole mouth and make recommendations on how to achieve a healthy bite. This is important because a stable occlusion means balanced forces which is likely to improve the longevity of your teeth whilst reducing the chances of painful dental problems developing in the future.
