Occlusal Adjustment

 

We offer occlusal adjustment: limited or full-mouth

Do you wake in the morning with sore jaws? And when you bite, do you feel like your jaw is lopsided? If so, then you may need an occlusal adjustment. An occlusal adjustment corrects the alignment of the bite, that is a result of loose, shifting, crowded, or missing teeth. The result is an evenly distributed bite that eliminates irregular pressure on one side of the mouth.  Once your bite is adjusted, your teeth will meet properly and evenly touching on both jaws.  In addition to the actual adjustment, removal mouthpieces are also utilized, to protect the tooth surface, and relax the jaw muscles once the adjustment is completed.  

Who is a good candidate for an occlusal adjustment?  Patients with loose or shifting teeth will many times not meet correctly. Patients, who grind or clench their teeth, will have an uneven bite and pressure distribution in the mouth, which is also corrected through an occlusal adjustment. Sometimes tooth sensitivity can be corrected through an occlusal adjustment as the treatment reduces pressure on the sensitive tooth.

If you suspect that you may need an occlusal adjustment, please call us to schedule an appointment.
