TOOTH WEAR AND TMJ DYSFUNCTION
- Have you lost teeth because they have just snapped or broken?
- Are your teeth short and stumpy and you break them regularly?
- Are your teeth sensitive all the time?
- Do you suffer with headaches and neck aches?
Yes, At Pure, we know that an unbalanced bite can cause a lot of pain; pain which quite often the patient believes isn’t linked to their mouth. People can suffer for a long time without realising that their pain could be easily fixed through occlusion assessment.
You may question whether your bite is off? Follow this simple method to check.
Curl your tongue up and back to touch the roof of the mouth. Then, very slowly, bite together. Stop when you feel a tooth/teeth touch. Ask yourself how many teeth are touching, is it all of them? If the answer’s no then unfortunately you have a bite problem which is likely to lead to the development of dental issues in the future. These problems could already be present without you realising, or they may take years to develop. At Pure Dental Health we believe it’s better to fix something before it breaks completely; after all we only get one set of adult teeth.
Occlusion is taken very seriously at Pure. Our knowledgeable dentists are able to examine the health and functionality of your whole mouth and make recommendations on how to achieve a healthy bite (a bite where all our teeth hit at the same time). This is important because a stable occlusion means balanced forces which is likely to improve the longevity of your teeth whilst reducing the chances of painful dental problems developing in the future.
