If you’ve been told that your teeth are misaligned, overcrowded, have an overbite, or are experiencing discomfort when biting or chewing, you may be in need of a malocclusion correction. At P. Vernon Erwin, DDS Biological Dentistry, we offer biocompatible malocclusion corrections treatments to shift your teeth safely into a more pleasing and functional appearance.
While it’s common for us to see patients with malocclusion issues, not many patients understand the long-term effects of have a misaligned bite. Patients with severe malocclusion have a greater chance of having tooth decay or a periodontal disease, gum disease, wearing down the teeth, sensitivity, and more.
While these symptoms may be different for all patients, it can lead to further damage down the road that can be painful. Often these symptoms escalate to a condition known as Temporomandibular Jaw Disorder, otherwise known as TMJ or TMD. This stress on the joint between the jaw and the skull can cause pain, irritation, and difficulty opening and closing your mouth.
By securing the health of your teeth early and correcting these misalignment problems, you can ensure a lifetime of oral health. A corrected bite can create a more comfortable foundation for eating, chewing, talking, and more.
All too often, we see patients suffering as a result of their misaligned smiles. Whether physically or psychologically, a change to your oral health can change your life for the better. Dr. Erwin is skilled in biocompatible orthodontic services, designed to give you the best treatment while also ensuring that the treatments don’t interfere with your biochemistry or energy flow.
Treatments such as braces, caps and more can correct your malocclusion for the better. And with Dr. Erwin’s specialty holistic dentistry approach, we will ensure that our treatments will not interfere with your energy flow, nutritional state, or your biochemistry.
