If you have an improper or misaligned bite, you and your oral health are affected in ways you might have never imagined. In fact, having a misaligned bite can cause damage to the teeth and can lead to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
TMJ disorder involves jaw and facial pain that can severely affect a person’s everyday life. So, it’s best to treat your bite correction as soon as possible.
The good news is that our highly trained periodontist, Dr. Anne Nicholas, can treat your misaligned bite and help to restore your oral health through a variety of techniques and treatments.
One such treatment that Dr. Nicholas provides is grinding the tooth enamel of the natural teeth to make them more even and more aesthetically pleasing. Another treatment she can provide is oral rehabilitation, which involves using dental crowns and other dental restorations to correct the bite problem.
