Is Malocclusion Causing Your Headache?

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Fresno Headache ReliefDo you suffer with chronic headaches? Have you tried Imitrex, diet adjustments, and Selma 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 fairly common problem with dental patients yet usually goes undetected. 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 severe cases, difficulty chewing, speaking or breathing.

Orthodontics are an effective solution for many bite problems. Braces not only move teeth, they can also the position and function of the joints, muscles and bones in the jaw. In very rare cases of extreme malocclusion, jaw surgery in Fresno may be necessary.
