You know many of the common things that result in dental health concerns including not brushing or flossing enough, foregoing regular visits to our Lafayette dental office, smoking, and even eating foods high in sugar. But did you know that your posture and your bite are related?
Straighten up, put your shoulders back, and read on to find out how.
You remember the song that first taught us all anatomy, right? The one where we learned the foot bone was connected to the leg bone. Turns out, this elementary explanation to the way our bodies are structured is right on. And that’s where we can run into problems if we have bad posture. It’s ideal to have your head, neck, spine, and your bite all in alignment. Issues with your jaw muscles and bite function could lead to possible posture pain in the future (along with TMJ disorder, migraines, and other uncomfortable problems).
There are several key warning signs that you may be suffering from a bad bite, that could lead to a potential posture problem. If you notice any of the following, call your dentist in Lafayette.
