How Orthodontics Can Correct a TMJ Disorder

Posted .

If you have TMJ disorder, orthodontics might be just the thing for correcting your jaw problems—permanently. How is that, exactly? Here are the details:

Many TMJ disorders are caused by what is called a malocclusion. That’s just a fancy term for a bad bite. Your misaligned bite can create stress on your jaw and teeth, resulting in pain and popping noises while chewing, speaking or singing.

Orthodontics is that branch of dentistry that is particularly intended to correct bad bites. If your teeth are crowded, uneven or spaced too far apart, Dr. Brett Gluck and our amazing team can offer you long-term treatment that can safely and slowly push and pull your teeth into alignment. We can also correct overbites, underbites, open bites, crossbites and other malocclusions.

Orthodontics is not only helpful in treating TMJ, but can give you a gorgeous, healthy smile. Those with straight teeth and a normal bite have a lower chance of experiencing dental issues in general. And it certainly doesn’t hurt to flash an aesthetic set of pearly whites.
