Headaches Or Jaw Pain? Invisalign in Valrico

unexplained jaw pain

Malocclusion is the dental term for a problem in the way your top and bottom teeth come together. The ideal bite is when the upper teeth are slightly forward of the lower teeth. In many cases, a bad bite can be corrected with Invisalign clear braces, from Five Star Dental Care in Valrico.

You have probably heard of overbites and underbites, but the two arches can be misaligned in many other ways. Crowded teeth can also cause a bad bite, as well as the opposite situation, teeth that are too far apart.

If the misalignment is slight, there are often no related issues. But if it’s moderate to severe, the patient is at risk for other issues such as headaches or jaw pain, difficulty chewing and speaking, hearing problems, increased decay, and gum disease.

The domino effect of these issues can get pretty serious. For example, chewing difficulty can trigger ulcers and gum disease increases the risk of stroke and heart disease. Consider also how these problems can impact a patient’s emotional well-being and ability to perform their job.

There are several effective treatments for malocclusion, and you may be a candidate for Invisalign clear braces. If you suspect you have a misaligned bite, call Five Star Dental Care in Valrico to schedule a consultation and exam. We provide cosmetic dentistry and other services.
