Are you an adult who suffers with chronic headaches? Have you tried Imitrex, diet adjustments, and Palmer chiropractic treatment? Perhaps the cause is not stress-induced tension, spine alignment or eyestrain. Maybe the culprit is right under your nose.
Bite misalignment or malocclusion is a common problem that often goes undetected and can cause TMD (Temperomandibular Joint Disorder). Nature intended the front teeth to fit slightly forward from the lower teeth. With a perfect bite, the molars fit together like precision gears.
Malocclusion can cause headaches, tooth loosening, tooth fracture, and in extreme cases, difficulty chewing, speaking or breathing, and strain your TMJ (Temperomandibular Joint).
Braces are an effective solution for most bite problems. Braces not only move teeth, they can also correct the position and function of the joints, muscles and bones in the jaw. In cases of extreme malocclusion, jaw surgery in Anchorage may be necessary.
