Having jaw problems?

The way your teeth meet when your top and bottom jaws close down on top of each other is known as your ‘bite’.

If your teeth don’t fit together properly, you could have malocclusion or ‘bad bite’, which can cause problems with your teeth, gums, the temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) and the muscles in your face.

This misalignment, often referred to as TMJ disorder, can also cause some people to clench the jaw and grind their teeth at night causing; facial pain; headaches; discomfort or clicking when biting or chewing; migraines; neck and shoulder pain; and possible back pain.

We’re here to help

Our team is highly experienced in diagnosing and treating jaw-related conditions.

We might get you to wear a hard plastic appliance at night, which is made to measure and fitted onto your bite accurately, so that when you bite on it, your teeth are in a position where your muscles are relaxed. This also stops your teeth from becoming worn down by grinding and protects them. Depending on the origin and severity of your problem, you may need orthodontic treatment or maxillofacial surgery.

We may also replace missing teeth or adjust ill-fitting bridgework that you may have.

The important thing to do is see us as soon as possible so your problem does not become worse over time and require more drastic measures to correct.

Andrew had the top right hand side of his mouth rebuilt, including dental implants and rebuilding the jaw. Andrew was in a lot of discomfort before having the procedure done.

Andrew was most impressed with the surgeon, Dr Adeel Ali. He explains that his easy personality, extensive knowledge, and skills put him at ease and made the whole thing easier.

“I am delighted. I can eat on both sides with comfort. And from a vanity perspective, I have a set of teeth that are really good.”
