You know orthodontic treatment can straighten crooked teeth and improve your bite. But did you know it can also eliminate TMJ dysfunction?
A misaligned bite can result in headaches, jaw pain, and other uncomfortable symptoms of a TMJ disorder. Correcting misaligned bites is our speciality at Richter Orthodontics!
In many cases, we may be able to address your TMJ trouble with a custom mouthguard rather than orthodontics. A mouthguard stops you from grinding your teeth and/or clenching your jaw while you sleep – two behaviors that can result in a TMJ disorder. Once pressure on your jaw is relieved, it can heal.
Check out our infographic to see if you have symptoms of TMJ dysfunction. If so, call Richter Orthodontics today at 970-500-5928 for a consultation in our Greeley, CO office. Or schedule online. Dr. Richter or Dr. De La Torre can determine if you’d benefit from a mouthguard or orthodontic treatment.
