About Bite Problems
Manage Your Bite Problems for a Healthier Smile
You may not think about your bite until you start having problems with it, and those dental problems can get worse over time if they’re not addressed.
A bad bite can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. It can also cause chewing and speaking difficulties and wear down your teeth.

We offer various dental services so you can get the care you need and restore your dazzling smile without breaking the bank. Please book an appointment with our dental clinic to see which treatment is right for you!
Dental Services That Can Address Bite Problems
Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions About
Your upper teeth should fit just over the lower ones, with even molars on both sides. Proper bite alignment is key to a healthy mouth; if everything lines up, you most likely have a healthy bite.
- It is commonly hereditary.
Bite misalignment is often attributed to genetics and tends to run in families. So if someone in your family has a bite that isn’t aligned, there’s a chance it could be passed down to future generations.
- Tooth loss.
Unaddressed tooth loss can result in bite misalignment and is a common but potentially damaging oral health issue.
- Periodontal disease.
Unhealthy gums and bacteria buildup along the gum line may lead to tooth loss and movement in the jaw’s alignment.
- Trauma or injury.
Unexpected traumas or injuries can have a significant impact on the alignment of your teeth. Whether it’s due to an accident, a fall, or even something as simple as clenching your teeth too tightly, it can lead to bite problems.
- Cleft lip or cleft palate.
Bite misalignment can be caused by a cleft lip or palate, which are congenital disabilities that often require orthodontic treatment. Your dentist has the knowledge and experience to help realign your teeth for better dental health and improved aesthetics.
- Abnormally-shaped teeth.
Bite misalignment can often be caused by teeth that are not normal in shape or size. If you’re experiencing a bite problem, it might be worth exploring whether abnormal tooth structure is the cause so your dentist can help address it.
- Impacted teeth.
Bite problems can result from something as simple as an impacted tooth. This is when teeth don’t erupt properly and remain trapped within your jawbone or when their growth is blocked or inhibited in some way.
- Thumb sucking and bottle feeding as a child.
Common causes of bite problems include thumb sucking and bottle feeding during childhood. If these behaviours are unchecked, they can lead to dental alignment issues later in life.
If your bite issue is impacting your dental health, like feeling pain when you chew, it may be time to make an appointment with your dentist so they can help manage any discomfort or other dental problems.
The timeline depends on various factors, like the severity of your bite problem and which treatments are necessary for your condition. In mild cases, it might only take several months to see changes, but more challenging bites can take up to two years or longer.
Bite problems cannot be managed at home and require the help of a dental professional. While waiting to see your dentist, you can take care of any problems at home by brushing and flossing your teeth daily to avoid cavities.
