Is Malocclusion Causing Your Headache?

Wakefield Headache Relief

Do you suffer from severe headaches? Have you tried meds, diet adjustments, and chiropractic treatment, to no avail? Future of Dentistry at Willows – North Andover might have the answer. Perhaps the cause is not stress-induced tension, food allergies, spine alignment, or eyestrain. Maybe the culprit is right under your nose!

Bite misalignment – or malocclusion – is a fairly common abnormality. However, it ordinarily goes undetected. Nature intended the front teeth to fit slightly forward from the lower teeth. With a perfect bite, the molars fit together like precision gears.

However, when there is bite misalignment, the upper arch may close too far back or the lower teeth may close off-center horizontally. This can cause headaches, loosening of the teeth, tooth fracture, and – in acute cases –  difficulty chewing, speaking, or breathing.

Invisalign® clear braces are a perfect solution for this bite dilemma. They shift your teeth comfortably and without the need for invasive metal in your mouth. They can also correct the position and function of the joints, muscles, and bones in the jaw. In very rare cases of acute malocclusion, jaw surgery may be required.

If you haven’t been able to identify the cause of your headaches, visit us at Future of Dentistry at Willows – North Andover. Patients from throughout Greater Boston and Merrimack Valley come to us for this and other cosmetic dentistry options. Contact us today!
