What is Occlusal Adjustment?
When you feel like your bite isn’t quite right, you may need an occlusal adjustment. An occlusal adjustment is a slight alteration of the way your teeth fit together. Our doctors examine your bite for evidence of wear or interference and then smooth the trouble areas by filing away a minimal amount of the tooth at the point of contact. Occlusal adjustment can be beneficial to you if you have had:
• Recent placement of crowns or fillings
• A dental bridge
• Symptoms of Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
Once these adjustments clear the interference, your jaw can close comfortably. Occlusal adjustment can be an effective treatment for headache, toothache, and jaw pain.
