Do you feel discomfort when you bring your teeth together or does your bite feel off? If your teeth do not align properly, you may need an occlusal adjustment to correct malocculsion.
Occlusal adjustment is a procedure that modifies the surfaces of a tooth or teeth with the goal of improving how the teeth make contact. It involves the grinding and shaping of selcted tooth surfaces to remove interferences from your teeth, thus correcting misaligned teeth.
Malocclusion is the dental term for a misaligned bite. Malocclusion may cause oral health issues if left untreated. An occlusal adjustment can correct malocclusion and restore the bite for normal funtion. It may also prevent several dental disorderes from developing in future.
