Is your bite correct?

Not everyone is born with perfect teeth. Most people have a combination of dental issues: underbite, overbite, deep bite, open bite, crowded teeth, or gap teeth. During our grandparents’ generation, as long as your teeth don’t cause any pain, it’s thought to be fine. Now we know that malocclusions (when teeth don’t bite properly due to dental issues like, for example, underbite), can cause stress on teeth, cause cracks in teeth, unhealthy gums, bad breath, make brushing difficult, and compromise your oral hygiene. 

Tanglin Dental can help you to identify these problems and suggest a solution, depending on your condition and age. You might have to straighten your teeth with braces or Invisalign, or we may suggest dentures, bridges, or implants. Or maybe we just need to repair the ‘holes’ in your teeth or design a night guard to prevent you from grinding down your teeth in your sleep.
