Bite Balance

Bite imbalance, or malocclusion, can cause pain leading other issues that adversely affect your health and quality of life. For some the pain zaps energy, creates moodiness, even on dependence on pain medication.

Symptoms of bite imbalance can include: 
  • Jaw popping, pain, locking 
  • Teeth grinding and clenching 
  • Headaches, migraines 
  • Tinnitus, ear ringing 
  • Neck, shoulder pain and tightness of muscles
  • Uneven wear of the teeth and problems with gum tissue

If you have any of the above symptoms, a bite evaluation might help identify the source of your pain and lead to complete pain resolution without surgery and without drugs. 

Proper bite balance allows you to eat, speak and smile in complete comfort. When your bite is aligned, there is no pain.

Expertise for Bite Correction 

Dr. Marc Whitmore is part of a small, elite group dentists that focus on correcting malocclusion. Dr. Whitmore has spent years researching the causes of occlusion misalignment and invested in hundreds of hours of postdoctoral training to provide non-surgical, non-drug involved therapies to correct bite imbalance, restore health, and enhance smile appearance. He has successfully relieved pain for dozens of people from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and New Mexico. 

To enhance the care experience, each member of our clinical care team has completed advanced training to support in the diagnosis and treatment of malocclusion. Whitmore Dental is one of only a few dental practices in the United States to offer advanced diagnostic technology for more precise diagnosis of bite imbalance. 

To assess and measure bite imbalance we utilize: 

  • Cone Beam Computed Technology Machine – captures more than 600 images of your mouth, head and neck to provide comprehensive bite image.
  • T-Scan – measures bite force allowing Dr. Whitmore to determine if one particular area of your mouth and / or jaw muscle is exerting more strength than another. 
  • Image guided model production – empowered Dr. Whitmore and our clinical care team to test and study treatment protocols on an exact model of your mouth, leading to more effective treatment solutions in less time. 

Dental innovation combined with advanced technique make it possible to eliminate pain completely for most people with bite imbalance.
