Is Your Bite a Little “Off?”

Bite misalignments, or malocclusions, are any deviation from a normal or ideal bite pattern that affects the way the teeth fit together. It is estimated that as much as 20 percent of the U.S. population has some level of misalignment. While living with a misaligned bite can make it difficult to chew or speak, many experience only minor symptoms. In fact, some patients we see are unaware their bite is off. If you are struggling with any of the following or are interested in a bite check, our doctors at Traverse Dental can meet with you to discuss your concerns. Some common symptoms of malocclusion include:

  • Difficulty Chewing or Speaking
  • Chronic Headaches
  • Chronic Neckaches
  • Minor Jaw or Tooth Pain
  • Bruxism or Teeth Grinding
