Bite Dysfunction

Call (415) 986-5323

Nature has an ingenious plan for the way your bite functions. You may be surprised to learn that teeth are only one part of the process. The foundation of comprehensive dentistry is that your dentist indentify and correct problems not only with individual teeth but also with how the teeth, jaws, and muscles function together as a unit. To achieve stability, health and comfort, all of these components must operate in harmony. If any one of these is out of balance, the entire system will be affected.

You may not even be aware of it, but you may be exhibiting some signs and symptoms of a bite dysfunction. How do you know you have a problem? One or a combination of the following symptoms may indicate you have a bite dysfunction.

  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Sore or stiff jaw muscles
  • Facial and/or jaw pain
  • Pain with chewing
  • Loose teeth
  • Grinding

  • Notching of teeth
  • Uncomfortable bite
  • Clicks or pops in the joint
