Head, neck and facial tension and pain can be a result of dental disharomy. These pains can start and worsen because the body’s tolerance for uneven, unbalanced bite can change over time. The brain finally says, “That’s it! I can’t take this uneven bite anymore!”
Tooth clenching and grinding are the body’s reaction to an uneven bite. They are dentistry’s “silent killer”, responsible for incalculable dental damage. Most people are not even aware that they have and uneven bite because their teeth appear straight. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR TEETH.
Dental problems associated with tooth clenching and grinding include broken teeth, gum recession, worn and chipped teeth, loose teeth, bone loss, shifting of teeth, sensitivity and ultimately, tooth loss. Clenching and grinding can also cause chronic or acute muscle pain radiating to the neck, temples and jaw. Most pain associated with having an uneven bite can be relieved over night once a bite analysis is performed and treatment is provided.
