How to resolve jaw joint problems by using orthodontics

Typical symptoms of joint-related problems you can easily notice yourself:

  • Restless sleep and waking up tired (sure any of these can occur for many other reasons but they are often the signs of jaw joint syndromes) .
  • Regularly painful joints (including other joints).
  • Clacking sounds from the jaw joints while speaking or eating.
  • Occasionally cracking jaws.
  • Creaking feel in the jaws.

If any or more of these phenomena occur to you then you are more likely involved in a dental disorder that has the probability of 87,9% in Hungary: namely the malfunctioning jaw joints.

The evolution of this problem may be led by several factors upon we have little or no influence at all:

  • grinding teeth daytime or at night
  • stressed lifestyle and bruxism as its negative impact
  • uneven loading of the teeth while chewing
  • inappropriate connection of upper and lower teeth with closed mouth
  • long-time absence of teeth

What do you have to do if you want to see the options an orthodontic treatment can offer to you and your children?

If you have made up your mind and turn to a specialist – that’s a good sign, and the harder part is done: you have convinced yourself. From then on it’s only a series of tasks you do step by step. A paved road you only have to walk through.

The successful correction of a narrow, thin smile line with braces

Narrow, thin smile when the side teeth are often remain in shadow is a phenomenon that is an aesthetics as well as anatomic issue. It may emerge in childhood but often arise in adult ages. Behind this phenomenon is the bottleneck of upper jaw but its formation may be affected by the appearance of permanent teeth.

As a young adult when should I turn to an orthodontic specialist?

The answer to this question is very simple: when you are in need for this. There is of course a more technical definition because the goal for this group of age is to support the healthy and smooth development of permanent teeth and preserve the soundness of these teeth.

The solution of deep overbite with orthodontic treatments

We are referring to deep overbite when the vertical overlap of the teeth occurs. The lower front teeth bite too far up behind the upper front teeth into palate. The distance between the upper and lower arch is more than 1-1,5 mm. This phenomenon can easily be examined by you when looking in the mirror. There are different volumes of deep bite, but the bigger the distance the more serious the problem. So we need to look for solutions and the reasons are more anatomical than aesthetic.
