Bite Improvement

Occlusal disease is caused by a misalignment or incorrect relation between the teeth of the upper and lower dental arches. It is also called malocclusion. If left untreated, occlusal disease can damage your teeth, the supporting bones and gums around them, your temporomandibular joints, and the jaw muscles you use for chewing.

Many people dismiss excessive or abnormally accelerated tooth wear as “natural aging or wearing” of teeth, but we can provide treatment to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by occlusal disease.

Signs and Symptoms of Occlusal Disease

  • Enamel wear
  • Tooth cracking or breakage
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Gum recession
  • Loss of bone support
  • Muscle pain
  • TMJ symptoms
  • Diminishing aesthetics

Our goal is to preserve the oral health of our patients, as well as to anticipate the long-term results when restorative treatment is provided. Evaluation with treatment of occlusal disease can lead to a long life of optimal oral health and restorative treatment success.
