When our bite comes together, we’re looking for a harmonious meeting, making it easy to speak, eat, and more. However, we sometimes run into little interferences that can hinder our function. This makes occlusal adjustment necessary.
Occlusal adjustment is the precise and scientific method of grinding teeth to a proper shape that allows for a healthy bite. However, not all interferences occur naturally. Restorations including fillings, crowns, bridges, and extractions can lead to issues.
It’s important that your bite be in a proper position. The health risks of a bad bite, or malocclusion, include:
It takes our dentist to determine if you need occlusal adjustment. But, you may notice unevenness on your own, hear popping and clicking noises, get headaches and neck pain, and more.
If you’re in need of an occlusal adjustment in Jacksonville FL, it’s important that you don’t wait for treatment. Contact Alani Dental today to schedule an appointment!
