Dentist Blog

If you have a severe under bite or over bite and you think its leading to sleeping problems, and you don't like the way it makes your jaw look, there are some things you'll want to do. You want to get the problem fixed not only so you don't have a protruding jaw anymore, but also so you can sleep better, live safer, and love the way you look. Here are a few of the professionals that you want to consult with so you can get the smile and look that you want:

Oral Surgeon and Cosmetic Specialist

You want to see an oral surgeon who specializes in cosmetic dentistry, so they can fix the maxillofacial problem and the cosmetic issues you have. Removing the bite misalignment can help:

  • Stop grinding
  • Prevent injuries from having protruding bones
  • Improve eating and drinking
  • Eliminate pain in the jaw socket
  • Improve physical appearance

The specialist will tell you how severe the problem is, and what treatment is necessary. You may want to have your teeth whitened, filed, and repaired at the same time as you have other surgeries or procedures.


You may want to work with a chiropractor when you are using braces or other treatments to help straighten your teeth. You want to be sure that your jaw bones will stay in place after you spend the money to have them fixed, and that your smile looks as good as you imagined. The chiropractor can also look to see if the misalignment was caused by an issue with your skeletal structure, and if so, you want to have these misalignments corrected at the same time. The chiropractor and a massage therapist can help to relieve pressure and pain while the teeth and the jaw are being fixed.

If you walk around and you have a jaw bone that forces your mouth to look odd, and you are tired of the way it looks and the other oral health problems it's causing you, you want to get to a specialist and get help. There are several different types of braces that you can try when you are ready to have your teeth and the jaw, so you don't have to make it very noticeable that you are making the efforts to get your oral health problem fixed. Find out how long it's going to take, what the cost is going to be, and what other oral health changes need to be made.
