Clenching and Grinding

Clenching and / or grinding are the most common symptoms of an imbalanced bite pattern. The following signs and symptoms can also be an indicator of this problem: headaches, jaw joint pain, clicking joints, ringing ears and tingling finger tips.

Since there is a relationship between the teeth (your bite position), the jaw joints, the head and neck muscles and your head posture, an alignment problem can cause a domino affect; bringing pain and discomfort in other areas of the body. 

The signs and symptoms of patients who clench or grind are often the early indicators of a deeper underlying muscular imbalance. It is now possible with non-invasive electronic instruments to relax the muscles of the head and neck to reposition your bite that allows for the jaw muscles to be in a more relaxed state, thus reducing the symptoms.
