Correcting A Bad Bite
A bad (mis-aligned) bite can lead to a number of symptoms including jaw pain, chronic headaches, migraine, dizziness, tinnitus or neck and shoulder pain.
There are a number of treatments that may be used in permanently correcting a bad bite.Coronoplasty / Equilibration
Coronoplasty/equilibration is the extremely precise re-shaping of the enamel of teeth to improve the bite. It can only be employed in in cases where the bite is only slightly misaligned.Orthodontics
When the teeth are misaligned and otherwise healthy, a neuromuscular orthodontist can use orthodontics to move the teeth into an optimal position.Crown and Bridge Rehabilitation
The most common technique employed to correct a bad bite is the rehabilitation of the dentition using crowns, bridges, veneers or implants. (Often the teeth have been heavily stressed, worn or previously restored prior to seeking treatment.)Where to now?
If you suffer from jaw pain, chronic headaches, migraine, dizziness, tinnitus or neck and shoulder pain, the first step is to contact the treatment co-ordinator at Geelong Smile Studio to arrange a comprehensive neuromuscular consultation.
