What are the symptoms of bite problems?
Migraine-like headaches that are unilateral or hitting the back of the eye are usually accompanied by dental malocclusion.
The biggest effect of the imbalance in the contact of the teeth, which you call reflected pain, ie Malocclusion, on the face is headaches.
Headaches occur in cases where they do not go away despite taking painkillers, and the calcified areas accumulated in the muscles on the face, which we call trigger points, cause sudden onset of pain in the face when moving from a cold environment to a hot environment or vice versa when moving from a hot environment to a cold environment.
Confusing headache with toothache
This situation is often complicated by the fact that there is a problem in the tooth and the tooth that triggers the headache has a carious crack-like problem at the same time in the tooth that causes the tooth closure problem.
While the pain caused by caries is in the form of cold hot pain, the pain caused by bite is a chronic blunt pain. For this reason, it is not enough to correct tooth-related pain only by filling. Because its source is also caused by the problem in the muscle.
This troublesome process, which sometimes leads to tooth extraction, creates a complex situation for both the physician and the patient.
Facial stress and muscle tension
The problem of tooth bite, which becomes apparent with facial asymmetry, causes tension in the muscles in that area of the face.
Facial asymmetry is not very obvious under the age of 35 because facial collagen tidies up the face to eliminate it, but after the age of 35, facial asymmetry becomes apparent and muscle tension increases.
Stiffness or pain in your jaw
Closing problems of the teeth also affect the jaw. Think of it like this, when you walk around with high heels on one foot and flat shoes on the other foot, after a certain period of time, problems arise in your kneecaps.
In the same way, the jaw joints start to have problems due to tooth closure problems, and the physical appearance of this problem is stiffness and pain in the jawbone.
This actually occurs due to the stiffness and pain of the muscles that move the jawbone.
When you move your jaw, our joint hurts
As we explained in the previous heading, when we move our jaw while chewing while eating, pain occurs in our joint area, these pains are now evident in cases where the problem progresses further, that is, when there are untreated and precursor contacts.
Tooth bite problem and worn teeth
Dental bite problems cause the tooth that causes the bite problem to wear over time, and as a result of this wear, cold and hot sensitivity occurs in the tooth.
In progressive cases, sometimes the tooth may require root canal treatment.
Does night pain occur in teeth with bite problems?
When the sensitivity condition in the teeth with bite problems is not eliminated, it progresses further and starts to cause night pain as a result of the live part of the tooth being affected.
The reason for night pain is that the live part of the tooth is now affected by the current situation and needs canal treatment.
Does the bite problem cause facial collapse?
Facial deformation is the most common symptom of dental bite problems, especially after the age of 35.
The asymmetry on the face is deformed as a result of the inability of the facial muscles to tolerate this incorrect positioning as a result of incorrect positioning of the teeth.
Snoring and insomnia
When the problem of tooth closure also affects the breathing organ, that is, the incompatibility or even the lack of teeth, which is the carrier system in the mouth, that is, the skeleton of the mouth, does not support the breathing system, the snoring problem occurs in the person.
At the same time, insomnia also occurs, especially in cases where breathing cannot be taken in the evening because of the inability to breathe comfortably.
There is no vigour when waking up from sleep.
Tooth grinding (Bruxism)
While the teeth are in contact with each other, they actually communicate with each other.
In individuals with closure problems, there is an irregularity in this communication and as a result of this irregularity, the teeth want to contact each other more and want to press balanced by rubbing each other.
In order to achieve this balance, wear occurs on the teeth by contacting more than normal.
This wear causes more grinding afterwards, that is, in a way, continuous grinding followed by abrasion, abrasion followed by grinding, this is a complete unsolvability for patients. For this reason, it is necessary to solve the closing problem before it occurs, and if there is a closing problem, it should be eliminated.
If the closing problem will not be solved, at least the problem should be stopped with a night guard to be worn at night.
