A Telltale Signs of An Uneven Bite
Everyone is different, but here are some common symptoms you might experience if you have an uneven bite.
From “stress” headaches to severe migraines the trigger for the pain is most often muscle cramps which in turn is frequently because of tooth clenching and/or grinding.Learn More
Worn, broken, cracked teeth, sore, crooked teeth, and even gum recession can often be traced back to clenching and grinding of the teeth. 90% of clenching and tooth grinding is due to having an uneven bite. However, most people aren’t even aware that they do clench and grind their teeth and because the damage happens over time it can be extremely hard to notice.Learn More
Teeth clenching or grinding will damage the jaw joint over time. If your jaw makes sounds like clicks, pops, grinding noises, opens crooked or is hard to open, you have damage in the joint. While you can’t fix it, you can prevent it from getting worse and leading to more serious problems including severe pain and even changes in your facial appearance.Learn More
What Our Patients Say
I’ve been a patient of Dental Care of Stamford for 8 years, not only myself, but my wife as well and our four children. All I can say is that we are very big fans of Dr. Simon and Dr. Eva and the whole team here. I just completed a program of TMJ treatment. I must say that Dr. Simon’s excellent treatment and the professional care was tremendous and I’m very happy with my new bite. I’m very happy to recommend to anybody who is looking for a good dentist for adults or for children in the area and especially for help with their bite. Dr. Simon and his team are extraordinary.
I had Invisalign for about a year which straightened out my teeth but I was still having issues with jaw pain and I was getting a lot of headaches and migraines. So Dr.Simon and I talked about reshaping my bite. My mouth was crooked inside, you couldn’t see it, but I was only biting down on the right side. Dr. Simon and I went over the whole plan. We went forward and immediately my mouth started to feel better. I was clenching my teeth less. I don’t seem to be grinding my teeth now. My teeth meet on both sides at the same time and really my headaches seem to have gone away.
