Do you suffer from chronic headaches? Have you tried painkillers, diet adjustments, and chiropractic treatment? Clear braces from Mason Dental in Grapevine may be the answer.
Bite misalignment or malocclusion is a fairly common abnormality yet frequently goes undetected. One of the symptoms is headaches.
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 not only cause headaches, it can cause tooth loosening, tooth fracture, and in severe cases, difficulty chewing, speaking, or breathing.
Braces are an effective solution for many bite troubles. Braces not only move teeth, they can also correct the position and function of the joints, muscles, and bones in the jaw.
