Is Malocclusion Causing Your Headache?

Pearland Headache ReliefDo you suffer from chronic headaches? Have you tried migraine medications, diet adjustments, and Alvin chiropractic treatment? Perhaps the cause is not stress-induced tension, spine alignment or eye strain. Maybe the culprit is right under your nose.

Bite misalignment or malocclusion is a fairly common problem with dental patients, yet it commonly 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.

Malocclusion can cause headaches, tooth loosening, tooth fracture, and in extreme cases, difficulty chewing, speaking or breathing.

Braces are an effective solution for many bite problems. Braces not only move teeth; they can also the position and function of the joints, muscles, and bones in the jaw. In very rare cases of extreme malocclusion, jaw surgery in Pearland may be required.
