Beyond Appearance: How Braces Can Improve Your Bite and Chewing Function?
No doubt braces and clear aligners can give you a gorgeous smile. But aesthetics aside, braces and clear aligners are a blessing to people who want to improve their bite and fix other minor and major orthodontic problems.
Want to learn more about how braces can improve your bite and help you chew better? Read along as we share with you a quick guide that tells you everything you must know about correcting your bite with the help of braces or clear aligners.
How do braces help in fixing bite problems?
A bad bite, also known as malocclusion is when your teeth or the jaw are misaligned and are not in their ideal position. This can cause chewing and speaking troubles.
Braces help in this situation as they help to move the jaw to its proper position. Misaligned teeth can cause many problems like headaches, mouth pain, gum diseases etc.
Different bite issues to correct
There are different types of bite issues that can be corrected with braces or invisible aligners. Here are a few common bite issues which can be fixed with metal braces or new-age makeO toothsi’s clear aligners.
- Open bite
An open bite is when the front teeth don’t align correctly with your bottom denture. This makes it difficult for your mouth to close properly and you might see a visible gap in the mouth of people who suffer from an open bite.
Open bite is typically caused due to tongue thrusting and sucking of the thumb in children.
An underbite is when your lower jaw and upper jaw are not aligned and rather your lower jaw is abnormally protruded.
In this scenario, biting and chewing becomes difficult and people with this bite problem often suffer from TMJ issues.
An overbite is the exact opposite of an underbite. People who suffer from an overbite have an upper jaw that is pushed more forward than their lower jaw.
Having an overbite can cause gum disorders and cause premature wear and tear of your front teeth.
Crossbite is when your top teeth and your bottom teeth don’t come together. While some teeth might protrude over the lower jaw, some might be behind. This causes an uneven alignment of your teeth.
If you notice that your bite is improper and you could do with a bite makeOver, then don’t postpone getting a swoon-worthy smile. Get in touch with the folks at makeO toothsi today and book yourself a free 3D scan today to evaluate your dental case.
