Is Malocclusion Causing Your Headache?

San Antonio Headache ReliefDo you suffer from chronic headaches? Have you tried drugs, diet adjustments, and chiropractic treatment? At Jurich Dental, we are familiar with the impact bite misalignment can have on your daily life.

Perhaps the cause is not stress-induced tension, food allergies, spine alignment, or eyestrain. Maybe the culprit is right under your nose.

Bite misalignment or malocclusion is a fairly common impairment yet commonly 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. 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 severe cases, difficulty chewing, speaking, or breathing.

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

If you haven’t been able to identify the cause of your headaches, talk to your dentist. If you don’t have a dentist and live in the San Antonio area, we invite you to visit Jurich Dental Family Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry. We offer technologically advanced dentistry with a personal touch.

During your exam, doctor Jurich 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.
