Why Dental Restorations Wear and Tear
If your dental restorations are wearing quicker than they should. It could have something to do with your TMJ or bite.
According to Amherst Village Dental your bite along with your jaw joints must be in alignment or your dental restorations will suffer for it.
Cross Bites Under Bites and Dental Restorations
Dr. Ang is a bioesthetic dentist in Amherst Village. Bioesthetic dentistry takes general dentistry a step further. That step further is a complete examination of the chewing system and oral cavity.
While most dentists only check out old dental restorations, teeth and gums, Dr. Ang makes sure the rest of your mouth is in working order as well.
For instance, if you have an over or under bite it could be causing you to clench and grind your teeth. Actually, any type of bite will affect the way you chew and the way your teeth come together.
Clenching and grinding is detrimental to teeth. Chronic grinders who suffer from bruxism will notice the wear and tear after only a few months.
Your temporomandibular joints are what hinges your lower jaw to your upper jaw. If either joint isn’t aligned properly TMJD could be an issue.
Temporomandibular joint disorder causes jaw popping and clicking. TMJD also causes headaches and jaw pain.
A bioesthetic dentist in Amherst Village will immediately be able to tell if your TMJ is doing what it is supposed to do.
If it isn’t, the problems will be addressed before any type of restorative or cosmetic procedure is even considered.
As you can see having any type of bite or TMJ issue taken care of before veneers and crowns will save you time and money.
