The Right Bite
Many people do not realize that your posture significantly affects your bite, and vice versa. There is a close connection between the head and the spine. If the head is carried too far forward in front of the shoulders, your neck, shoulders and back may shift to compensate. Our dentist can help you evaluate whether your posture and bite need correction.
If you have missing or broken teeth, it can be difficult to get the proper nutrition from the food you eat. A good diet is important and being able to chew properly is just as important.
Sometimes your tongue cannot move freely due to its size or because of a muscle binding it to the floor of the mouth, both of which can significantly affect your speech. We can help you correct improper tongue function to improve your speech and oral health.
If you have any questions about your bite, eating right or speaking right, please call The Grove Family Dental and TMJ Clinic today at (608) 882-4441 to schedule an appointment with Dr. John Gernetzke and learn more about dental care in Evansville, Wisconsin, and how we can improve the health and function of your smile.
