How Orthodontics Can Mend TMD

Posted .

Orthodontics might be just the thing for correcting your temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Don’t believe us? Here’s how it works:

TMJ disorders are sometimes formed by what is called a malocclusion. That’s the technical term for a misaligned bite. A bad bite can be a strain on both your teeth and jaw, leading to the painful disorder that is TMD.

Fortunately, orthodontics was specifically created to correct crooked teeth and malocclusions. If your teeth are crammed, gapped or irregular, Dr. Brett Gluck and our amazing staff can offer you an orthodontic treatment such as braces that can safely and slowly push and pull your bite into alignment. We can correct overbites, underbites, open bites, crossbites and other malocclusions.

Orthodontics is not only valuable for treating TMJ, but can give you the stunning, strong smile you desire. Studies report that people with healthy bites and straight mandibles have a lower chance of experiencing dental issues in general. And it certainly doesn’t hurt your social life when you flash a gorgeous set of pearly whites.
