Your bite’s alignment greatly influences your dental and overall health. Drs. Christopher Graff and Scott Peterson are specially trained in treating issues related to bite alignment, including temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction and migraines.

TMJ is characterized by severe headaches, jaw pain of varying degrees, grinding teeth, and an intermittent ringing in the ears. The vast majority of TMJ sufferers are unaware that the root cause of these problems is something that a dentist can effectively treat.  With training in craniofacial pain, Dr. Graff and Dr. Peterston are able to determine if you have TMJ disorder and can provide orthopedic treatments for the condition.

Treating Bite Misalignment

Headaches, clicking in the jaw, jaw clenching, grinding, pain in the jaw, and accelerated wear on teeth can all be related to your bite's alignment and are often signs of bite-related issues that can be treated with proper therapy and support. If left untreated, these symptoms can cause decay, damage to teeth, and tension in the face leading to frequent migraines. The tension in the face can travel throughout the body, making it especially important to receive treatment for bite-related complications before they can worsen.
