Signs Your Bite is Unbalanced

Posted on 10/19/2020 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
The importance of having a correct bite stretches further than the obvious oral benefits as it can relieve headaches, back pain and ear ringing. There are symptoms that an unbalanced bite causes that can be indicative of the complication. A dentist or orthodontist can diagnose an unbalanced bite by examining the jaw. An unbalanced bite is either an underbite, overbite or crossbite. Symptoms of an Unbalanced Bite An unbalanced bite can cause TMD (temporomandibular disorder), which is tenderness and pain that comes from the jaw joint. The bite causes strain to the joint by being incorrectly aligned. This can consequentially cause headaches, migraines, and upper back and neck pain. TMD can be an indication of an incorrect bite, which can be confirmed by one of our dentists. Bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, can also be an indication of an unbalanced bite.

How Untreated TMJ Can Result in Ringing in Your Ears

Posted on 10/5/2020 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
If you suffer from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), you might experience a range of symptoms that can be painful and impact your daily life.

Some people even experiencing other sounds such as hissing, clicking, buzzing or roaring, all of which are related with tinnitus as well. Why Does Tinnitus Happen with TMD? The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is located directly next to your eardrum, which is why TMD can affect your hearing and cause pain in your ears.

What to Do to Help Keep an Infants Gums Clean

Posted on 9/21/2020 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
Every parent knows the importance of keeping their child's teeth clean. Regular brushing and flossing is key to your child's oral health. But what about before he or she has teeth? Did you know that it is just as important to keep your child's mouth clean even before his or her teeth erupt? Fortunately, it is fairly simple to keep an infant's gums clean. Why Keep the Gums Clean? Some parents don't understand why they need to keep their infant's gums clean before there are any teeth present. The same bacteria that live in your mouth when you have teeth also live there prior to the teeth coming in. By keeping the levels of the bacteria at bay, you can help create a healthy environment for those teeth when they do come in. Regular Cleaning of the Gum Tissue The good news is that it's very easy to help keep your infant's gums clean. Simply use moistened gauze, or even a damp and clean washcloth. Gently open your child's mouth and wipe down the...
