Why You Need a Comfortable Bite

If you are diagnosed with a ‘Bad Bite’ or TMJ/TMD we often start treatment by fitting you with a temporary stabilization appliance. This can help determine the cause of your issues, and help to understand the prognosis, or if we need to dig a little deeper.

Once you have a diagnosis, we can begin to correct the cause in the most conservative way possible. This sometimes means we need to create a team of healthcare providers around you. An open mind often allows us to see where the problem is coming from … and sometimes it is not dental! Identifying cause is the most important step. Regardless of who you choose to see, an accurate diagnosis is critical.
