Having a misaligned bite can be inconvenient, bothersome, and even unhealthy, which is why our 360 Orthodontics team strongly recommends correcting your misaligned bite to improve your oral health and your life.

There are many reasons why you should align your bite, and some of those reasons are because:

-It makes eating easier: Having an aligned bite can make eating less difficult. You will finally be able to chew normally without having to focus on adjusting your jaw so you can break down food.

-It reduces the amounts of headaches you have: Oftentimes, having a misaligned bite can lead to teeth grinding habits, which lead to headaches. When you align your smile, you will no longer grind your teeth and you won’t have to worry about falling victim to temporomandibular disorder.

-It lowers your risk of lip and gum injury: If you have a misaligned bite, you are highly likely to accidentally bite your cheeks and lips, which can result in cuts, sores, and infections. Once you align your bite, you will lower your risk of soft tissue injury.

-It boosts your self-confidence: Having an aligned bite will help you finally love your appearance and be proud of your smile. You will also be able to smile, eat, and talk with confidence.

-It lowers your risk of having major dental issues: If you have a misaligned bite, your chances of chipping, breaking, and cracking your teeth are increased, especially if you participate in sports. Having a misaligned bite can also increase your chances of having tooth decay and gum disease. So, if you correct your bite, you will have the top-notch oral health you are looking for.
