Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment for Your Open Bite?
- Prevention of Future Dental Problems: Because some teeth contact sooner or harder to make up for the teeth that don’t contact, open bites can lead to dental trauma like chipping and fractures of the teeth that do touch. Orthodontic treatment can prevent problems in the future by relieving that pressure now.
- Improved Function: Having an open bite can prevent your teeth from making contact, impairing your eating and speaking abilities. Orthodontic treatment can improve your tooth-to-tooth contact so you can function better and more easily.
- Better Aesthetics: Orthodontic treatment can improve the look of your smile, giving you more confidence while also improving the functional alignment of your teeth.
- Pain Reduction: Open bites can cause jaw pain and even headaches because some teeth are biting harder than others. Because the biting forces are not evenly distributed, your risk of TMJ problems may increase. Orthodontic treatment relieves this pressure by correcting your open bite and ensuring all your teeth contact evenly.
