Main Issues with Misalignment

A misaligned bite does not just impact the look of your smile; it affects other aspects of your health, causing problems like:

●      Difficulty Speaking

A misaligned bite can cause you to develop a lisp or speech impediment, which can negatively impact self-esteem and social acceptance. 

●      Chewing Abnormally

Bite misalignments make it difficult to chew normally. As a result, you inflict strain on your teeth and jaw, which puts them at risk for damage. 

●      Pain in the Jaw

Misalignment can lead to jaw pain that is so severe it affects your entire face and body. The intensity of this pain can progress into headaches, earaches, and dizziness. 

●      Tooth Decay and Gum Disease

Because a misaligned bite can make it more difficult to keep your teeth clean when brushing and flossing, you are at greater risk for developing tooth decay, cavities, and gingivitis.
