Occlusal Adjustment
AGD Member
 

Do you wake in the morning with sore jaws?

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. Occlusal adjustment causes minimal pain, and only a little discomfort.  In addition to the actual adjustment, removable 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 or 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, schedule an appointment.
