Jaw Problems & Teeth Care
The way your teeth meet when your top and bottom jaws close is called your occlusion or ‘bite’. If you feel your teeth don’t fit together properly, you could have malocclusion or ‘bad bite’, which can cause problems with your teeth, gums, the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) and the muscles in your face.
Malocclusion is referred to TMJ disorder. It can also cause some people to clench the jaw and grind their teeth at night. This can lead to facial pain, headaches, discomfort and clicking when biting or chewing, migraines as well as neck, shoulder and back pain. If you suffer from any of these symptoms, our dentists can help you.
In some cases, the treatment may include wearing a hard plastic mouth guard at night. This is made-to-measure and helps place your mouth in a position where your muscles are relaxed. This also protects your teeth from becoming worn down by grinding. Other solutions may include replacing missing teeth or adjusting any ill-fitting bridgework that you may have.
The important thing is to see your dentist as soon as possible so your problem does not become worse over time and require more drastic measures to correct.
If your quality of sleep is suffering due to snoring, speak to our dentists to see if they can help you with a custom made anti-snoring device which can help with jaw problems and snoring.
Snoring has an immense impact on the health and quality of life for the snorer, their partner and family. The lack of sleep caused by snoring has wide reaching effects such as:
* Daytime sleepiness
* Lack of energy
* Poor motivation
* Driving while tired
* Higher stress levels
* Reduced effectiveness at work.
