Appliances to Improve Your Bite Function

Appliances to Improve Your Bite Function Richmond, Katy, Rosenberg, Pecan Grove, Greatwood TX

In many ways, keeping your teeth free of harmful oral bacteria is the backbone of preventive dentistry. Sometimes, however, maintaining the health and integrity of your smile means addressing a problem with your bite’s function. Bruxism (chronic teeth-grinding) and TMJ disorder (jaw dysfunction) affect your bite function if not addressed properly. Because the two conditions are often related, many patients require treatment for both. Fortunately, that can often be achieved with the help of a custom-designed oral appliance. The appliance helps protect teeth from grinding against each other and allows your TMJs to rest and heal comfortably.

Treating the Effects of Bruxism and TMJ Disorder

Comprehensive Exams and Diagnoses Richmond, Katy, Rosenberg, Pecan Grove, Greatwood TX

When left untreated, bruxism can cause your teeth to run together so forcefully that they wear each other down. It can also damage your temporomandibular joints (TMJs), making it difficult for your jaw to move comfortably. Therefore, treating bruxism and TMJ disorder may require more involved treatments. For instance, porcelain crowns can rebuild compromised tooth structure or MTM® aligners can correct bite misalignment. After a comprehensive examination, we’ll consult with you to determine which treatment or combination of treatments will offer the most successful results.
