The Benefits Of Evaluating Your Bite Function

What kinds of issues should you watch out for if you want to protect and preserve your oral health? Good dental hygiene is certainly important. Smart diet choices will also contribute to your ability to protect your teeth. One issue you should watch out for is a problem with your bite function. Uneven or awkward movements can tax your joints and muscles, leading to excessive reliance on certain teeth. This can lead to them wearing down sooner than they should and becoming more vulnerable to problems. Troubled bite movement can also cause you to experience difficulties with jaw pain, headaches, and other quality of life issues. Our Houston, TX dentist’s office can use TruDenta to carefully evaluate your bite and look for nonsurgical approaches to corrections that improve your oral health and alleviate discomfort.

Unaddressed Bite Problems Can Have Many Consequences

Is it really possible to develop an uneven bite function? There are different reasons why this occurs. You may unconsciously favor certain teeth because others have problems with their shape or size that make them contribute less when you bite and chew. Different factors can change the alignment of your jaw in ways that lead to more stress and limited movements. By undergoing an evaluation, you can learn about any imbalances that are present, and from there you can enjoy treatment to positively change your jaw movement and health!

Planning A Review With TruDenta

TruDenta technology makes it possible for us to provide a detailed review of your jaw movement and alignment. By studying this information, we are able to locate the presence of any imbalances that contribute to your oral health issues, as well as the problems you have with headaches, jaw stiffness and pain, and more. Once we have the information we need, we can discuss corrective efforts that lead to pain relief without the need for surgery to restore your jaw movement.

The Role Dental Work Can Have In Improving Your Bite Function

To fully regain an even, natural bite function, we can recommend that certain teeth undergo restorative treatment. Capping teeth that are damaged, misshapen, or undersized can lead to improvements in your ability to evenly apply and release pressure. The good news is that in addition to providing functional support, crowns can offer cosmetic benefits, as they can be made to match the appearance of your healthy enamel.
