The Importance of Fixing a Bad Bite

Dr. Arnaldo Lopez, CEO & General Dentist with SOMI Dental Group, affirms bite is so important, because it causes so many different conditions in the future.
He says he incorporates bite in his practice, because when the teeth are straighter, people clean the teeth so much easier and it helps to reduce the risk for periodontal disease in the future.
The doctor explains what the Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) is. He adds when the bite is not well, it gets worse.
Diana Perez-Caballero, Lead Dental Hygienist with SOMI Dental Group, also says TMD can cause gum inflammation and then later on life, periodontal disease, bone loss, recession of gums and sensitivity.
