Jaw Problems and Treatment


Dr Minesh Patel Advice About Jaw Problems And Treatment

The way your teeth meet when your top and bottom jaws close down on top of each other is known as your 'bite'. If your teeth don't fit together properly, you could have malocclusion or 'bad bite', which can cause problems with your teeth, gums, the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) and the muscles in your face.

This misalignment, often referred to as TMJ disorder, can also cause some people to clench the jaw and grind their teeth at night. This can lead to:
       Facial pain
·         Headaches
·         Discomfort & clicking when biting or chewing
·         Migraines
·         Neck and shoulder pain
