Is Malocclusion Causing Your Headache?

Jacksonville Headache ReliefDo you suffer from chronic headaches? Have you tried painkillers and chiropractic adjustment? Perhaps the cause is not stress-induced tension or spine alignment. Maybe the culprit is right under your nose. Bite misalignment or malocclusion is a fairly common impairment, yet often goes undetected. It can be corrected with Invisalign clear braces from Freedom Village Dental in Jackson.

Nature intended the front teeth to fit slightly forward from the lower teeth. With a perfect bite, the molars fit together like precision gears. When there is bite misalignment, the upper arch may close too far back or the lower teeth may close off-center horizontally.

Malocclusion can cause headaches, tooth loosening, tooth fracture, and in extreme cases, difficulty chewing, speaking, or breathing.

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

If you haven’t been able to discover the cause of your headaches, talk to your dentist. If you don’t have a dentist and live in the Jacksonville area, we invite you to visit Freedom Village Dental. We offer technologically-advanced dentistry with a personal touch.

During your exam, we will analyze your bite to see if it may be contributing to or causing your headaches. If that’s the case, we will develop a treatment plan that could include clear braces from Invisalign. Schedule a consultation with us today.
