Are you a Beverly Hills adult who suffers from chronic headaches? Have you tried Imitrex, diet adjustments, and Century City chiropractic treatment? Perhaps the cause is not stress-induced tension, spine alignment or eyestrain. Maybe the culprit is right under your nose.
Bite misalignment or malocclusion is a common problem in Los Angeles that often goes undetected. Nature intended the front teeth to sit slightly farther forward than the lower teeth. With a perfect bite, the molars fit together like precision gears.
Malocclusion can cause headaches, loosening of teeth, tooth fracture, and, in extreme cases, difficulty chewing, speaking or breathing.
Orthodontic treatment is an effective solution for most bite problems. Braces not only move teeth, but can also correct the position and function of the joints, muscles, and bones in the jaw. In cases of extreme malocclusion, jaw surgery may be necessary.
Not all Hollywood and Century City family dentists treat bite problems. At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry we treat all types of malocclusion including overbite, underbite, and crossbite. For an affordable Los Angeles dentistry consultation, call us at 310-277-5678.
