Jaw Related Issues That Can Cause Dental Problems


Posted on 3/6/2023 by Dr. Janice Pliszczak
Jaw Related Issues That Can Cause Dental ProblemsThe jaw is a crucial oral structure that enables humans to eat, communicate, and yawn. A variety of dental issues can arise from improper jaw function. Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder is a frequent problem with the jaw.

This disorder impacts the jaw joint (TMJ) between the jaw and the skull. TMJ dysfunction causes discomfort and restricted jaw movement. This condition can also result in a clicking or popping noise whenever the jaw is moved. Misaligned teeth, commonly known as malocclusion, are another problem associated with the jaw. The loss of teeth, an injury, or heredity can all play a role in bringing this about. Biting and chewing may become difficult, and you may develop cavities and gum disease more easily if you have a malocclusion.

Issues With The Jaw Have Numerous Effects


Issues with the jaw joint can impact jaw function and speech, and facial aesthetics. An overbite or underbite, for instance, might make it hard to pronounce particular consonants and create an uneven appearance on the face. Treatment for jaw problems will vary according to the nature and severity of the issue. Orthodontics and physical therapy are conservative treatments that could be tried first. A surgical procedure may be required if the condition is severe.

Avoiding more serious dental diseases requires prompt treatment of any concerns with the jaw. See a dentist immediately if you have jaw pain or discomfort or if you've noticed any changes to your bite or facial appearance. They can aid in making a diagnosis and provide suggestions for how to proceed with care.
