Is Malocclusion Causing Your Headache?

Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry

Birmingham Headache Relief Are you an Alabama adult who suffers with chronic headaches? Have you tried Imitrex, diet adjustments, and Alabama 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 Alabama problem that often 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 extreme cases, difficulty chewing, speaking or breathing.

Alabama invisible 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 Alabama may be necessary.

Not all Alabama dentists treat bite problems. At Koch Aesthetic Dentistry we treat most types of malocclusion including overbite, underbite and crossbite. For an affordable Alabama cosmetic dentistry consultation, call us at 205-933-0323.
