Solutions for tooth grinding and orthodontic issues
If your teeth, fillings or crowns keep breaking, or you discover your teeth are loose, this could be due to occlusion problems. Do you suffer from headaches, jawache, neckache, pain when you open or close your mouth, or mouth stiffness? These are all symptoms of occlusion complaints. Dental occlusion is the medical term for the way in which your upper and lower teeth meet, otherwise known as your bite. Bite problems are very common, but treatable.
The most common treatments for alleviating the pain, frustration and damaged teeth associated with occlusion problems include restoring broken or missing teeth, having teeth adjusted to meet more evenly and wearing braces. Mouth guards also help occlusion problems by alleviating damage cause by bruxing; the clenching and grinding of your teeth.

Grinding your teeth, either when you sleep, or in stressful situations is another bite problem. Having missing teeth can lead naturally to an unbalanced bite. You may have an overbite, underbite crossbite or open bite; all of these terms refer to the problem of your teeth not meeting each other ideally in your mouth.
