Bite Adjustment

 

A bite is considered to be healthy when all or most of your teeth are present and not destroyed by normal daily usage.

It is destructive when teeth show wear, looseness or when TMJ ( jaw joint ) damage is seen. Bite therapy helps restore a bite that can function without damage and destruction .

The therapy may  include:

Reshaping the biting surfaces of the teeth and eliminating spots os excessive pressure where the teeth are brought into contact. This is done by carefully dividing a bite pressure evenly across all of the teeth.

Bite splint therapy using a custom-fitted plastic guard made in our office to keep the teeth apart day, night or both.
