Jaw misalignment can cause many uncomfortable symptoms and negatively impact your teeth. Thankfully, Amazing Smiles offers several straightforward jaw realignment treatment options to correct and enhance your smile.

What Are Jaw Misalignment Symptoms?

Jaw misalignment can cause numerous symptoms of varying intensity depending on the issue's severity. If your jaw is misaligned, you may experience:

  • Headaches and earaches
  • Chronic and severe jaw and tooth pain
  • Difficulty eating, breathing, sleeping or speaking
  • Inability to properly clean teeth, leading to increased risk of cavities and gum disease
  • Trouble opening your mouth wide

How Does Jaw Misalignment Happen?

Your jaw functions through the coordination of tendons, muscles and bones. If any of these structures are imbalanced, they can cause the entire jaw to become uneven. There are several primary causes of jaw misalignment:

  • Trauma: Sports injuries, accidents, falls and other traumas that damage your teeth can also affect your jaw's alignment.
  • Congenital disorders: You can be born with jaw misalignment, and certain conditions that affect the face's symmetry may also cause the jaw to be uneven.
  • Teeth misalignment: Crooked teeth can cause an uneven jaw, and aligners or braces may correct that teeth misalignment.

Why Should Jaw Misalignment Be Addressed?

If left untreated, jaw misalignment can cause discomfort and contribute to social anxiety or self-confidence issues. More severe cases of jaw misalignment can interfere with your ability to eat, speak and even breathe.

Jaw realignment treatment allows you to resume a healthy life with improved confidence and an easier smile.
