Could your teeth be contributing to your bad posture?

A few days ago, the results of two different case studies on bad posture and balance were announced, and the outcomes were very interesting! They correlated having a malocclusion with a bad posture and our capacity to keep our balance when we’re tired.

The studies were conducted at the Universities of Innsbruck and Barcelona, and have proven that if a malocclusion is corrected, the bad posture and the balance impairment do get better.

This is really interesting and it proves something that every dentist knows by instinct: the state of our mouth is much more important to our health than we think, and we’re always finding new ways in which having a totally healthy and functioning occlusion improves our life!

Having a bad posture is one of the afflictions that we like to point out as very typical of the 21th century, and these findings are amazing in understanding that it can be avoided or, at least, mitigated.

If just by correcting a malocclusion we can improve someone’s posture, then we’re saving them a lifetime of extreme back, neck and jaw pain, and many other problems associated with it.

If you have bad posture, book an appointment with your dentist, because the cause may lie in your teeth and your jaw. Nowadays, correcting a poor dental occlusion is relatively easy, and can help with a lot of problems that deal with our posture, our speech and even our digestion.
