​How Your Bite Improves Posture and Stability

TMJ-Disorder-Treatment

Do you ever experience pain in your neck, shoulders, or back? Poor posture can cause various health problems, including pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulders, tension headaches, and even low back pain. However, did you know that your bite can affect your posture and stability?

Recent research has demonstrated the value of orthodontic treatment in correcting bite abnormalities and improving jaw position in posture control. In athletes, a more functional bite can help improve balance and posture and prevent injuries that often occur as a result of unstable posture.

Effects of Bite Alignment

A misaligned bite can cause the head to be positioned forward and down, which leads to poor posture. This can also cause the jaw to be pulled to one side, further exacerbating the problem. In addition, a misaligned bite can lead to instability of the jaw, which can, in turn, cause pain and discomfort.

On the other hand, a more functional bite helps improve posture and stability by correcting the alignment of the teeth and jaws. This allows for a more natural position of the head and neck, which leads to less strain on the muscles and joints. Additionally, a more functional bite helps prevent injuries that often occur due to unstable posture.

What Causes a Misaligned Bite? 

Several factors can contribute to a misaligned bite, including:

  • Genetics
  • Trauma
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Jaw clenching

While there is no one-size-fits-all solution for improving your bite, working with an experienced dentist or orthodontist like Dr. Buck can help you find the best treatment option for your individual needs.

Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.
