Dr. Kohler evaluates, diagnoses, and offers misaligned bite treatment to patients by using Tekscan T-Scan technology. Misalignment bite disorders may lead to or exacerbate TMJ and sleep apnea. An improperly fitting jaw might also result in problems speaking as well as difficulty brushing, grinding/clenching, etc. If you’ve discovered that you have an overbite, underbite, crowded teeth, or just general misalignment, you’re probably wondering where it came from.

Some of the most common causes that can lead to malocclusion in the mouth include impacted teeth. Misaligned bite treatment might be necessary with symptoms such as snoring, insomnia, fatigue, tooth grinding, tooth pain, gum soreness, tightness in the facial muscles, and headaches.

Give yourself the clench test – do you feel pain or sensitivity when you bite down? Is there contact between your teeth?

Leaving a misaligned jaw or bite untreated can contribute to significant discomfort and tension. Chronic pain can even lead to the development of diseases like anxiety and depression. As you can see, TMJ disorder may be related to long-term effects that have a profound impact on general health and wellness.
