Bioesthetic Dentistry for the Rest of Your Life
Taking care of your teeth and gums is essential, especially if you want to keep your natural teeth for the rest of your life. Bioesthetic Dentistry takes care of your whole mouth, not just your teeth and gums.
While it may not always be possible to keep your real teeth because of an accident, you can keep your natural teeth if you look after them.
Bioesthetic Dentistry and Your Chewing System
According to Chittenden Dental taking care of your teeth also means checking out your chewing system.
Your chewing system is what your teeth and gums rely on. If yours is out of whack so to speak, your teeth and gums could be paying the price.
For example, if you grind your teeth because your jaw is out of alignment your teeth will eventually wear down. You may also have to deal with broken restorations because of chronic grinding and clenching.
Thankfully, Dr. Mike Morris is an bioesthetic dentist who looks at your overall chewing system along with your teeth, gums and mouth.
Bite Problems and Bioesthetic Dentistry
If your bite is not aligned properly, the muscles that control your jaw will become tense and strained. This could cause headaches that can range from mild to severe.
Daily headaches will affect daily life. If you have chronic headaches, including migraines schedule an appointment with Chittenden Dental for bioesthetic dentistry.
Your TMJ is what connects your lower jaw to your upper jaw. Called the temporomandibular joint it will cause headaches, clenching and grinding.
Oral appliance therapy is an excellent solution. Oral appliance therapy consists of custom made mouth guards and oral splints.
You Won’t Always Have Symptoms
Of course, many people won’t have symptoms, but there are ways you can tell if you have a misaligned bite.
Those signs include jaw stiffness, problems pronouncing words and speech impairments. All of these problems could be connected to your chewing system and how it is aligned.
