Do poor bite cause problems?

By September 5, 2011 No Comments

Poor bite can lead to many dental and general problems. Those problems can be manifested as follow:

–       Damage to the teeth in the form of excessive wear, teeth chipping, tooth fracture, increased teeth sensitivity, gum recession…etc

–       Damaged cosmetic restorations (fractured filling, chipped crowns, loose crowns)

–        TMJ disorders including grinding clenching habit, muscles soreness and stiffness, clicking TMJ, difficulty opening and closing the mouth

–     Damage to dental implants london

How can the bite be corrected?

Careful assessment by Dr Daoudi, Prosthodontist specialist is needed to assess the extent of the problem.

This will involve full examination of the face, joint and teeth. If needed, a mould of the teeth will be recorded for further assessment using dental articulator for bite analysis.

Some of the suggested treatments to manage poor bite:

–       The fit of a bite guard/gum shield

–       Bite equilibration

–       The fit of cosmetic dental restorations where needed to protect the teeth and improve on the bite
