Dr. Bob Johnson offers bite correction treatments to help you improve your oral and overall health. Malocclusion, or bad bites, not only interfere with your smile, but can also lead to a number of other dental problems, including TMJ disorders, as they are often a result of misaligned jaws. For more information on bite correction in Grand Junction, Colorado, and to make an appointment with our dentist, please contact Horizon Dental Care at 970-245-3633.
There are many different types of bad bites, including overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites. The treatment you receive to correct your bad bite will depend on which type of malocclusion you have, and how severe it is. Treatments may include:
- Jaw or oral surgery
- Orthodontic treatment, such as braces, headgear, retainers, aligners, or other straightening treatments
- Oral appliances, such as mouth guards, elastic bands, or devices to prevent tongue thrusting
When you visit our practice, our caring dentist and team will work with you to determine the best treatment option for you, making sure that you understand your current dental condition and all your treatment options.
