When your bite is properly aligned, the teeth should mesh together like gears. If the teeth don’t fit together correctly, problems can arise with symptoms including headaches, popping and cracking of the jaws, jaw pain, and muscle pain in the head, neck and face. Some people clench and grind their teeth in an effort to find a comfortable bite.
Frederick smiles dental care offers services for TMJ related problems. The bite should always be evaluated prior to any restorations being placed so an incorrect bite is not perpetuated.
