Can Braces Help with Jaw Pain?

Orthodontist serving Stapleton, Denver, Cherry Creek & Nearby Areas of Colorado

Improper alignment of your teeth and malocclusion (bad bite) can lead to jaw pain or TMJ (Temporomandibular joint disorders). Using braces to correct the issues that cause your jaw pain will alleviate the underlying problems and your jaw pain.

At Advanced Orthodontic Care, Dr. Robert Rudman will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and bite in order to recommend the best treatment. Braces are recommended for children, teens, and adults who suffer from alignment or bite issues, such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite

Correcting your incorrect bite and misaligned teeth can alleviate the symptoms of your TMJ, which can range from jaw and face pain to muscle spasms and pain extending down your shoulders. It is often accompanied by headaches and dizziness.

If you need braces to correct your jaw pain, you have several options at Advanced Orthodontic care. Dr. Rudman will help you decide which one is right for you, but you may benefit from traditional braces, Invisalign, or Incognito orthodontic appliances. Dr. Rudman is a 5280 Top Orthodontist and can help you make the right decision.

If you are troubled by jaw pain, please contact Advanced Orthodontic Care to schedule your consultation to discuss what braces can do for you with a Denver orthodontist.
