Occlusal Adjustment

Symptoms of Misalignment

Interferences can prevent the jaw from fully sliding into it's anatomically correct position which can cause:

  • Headaches
  • Neck Aches
  • Tooth Pain
  • Bruxism or Teeth Grinding
  • TMJ

How is My Bite Fixed?

Before the procedure begins, the doctor will have you bite on a very thin piece of mylar paper. The mylar paper transfers color to the areas where contact occurs. The doctor will then smooth the area where the marks have been left by removing just enough of the tooth or restoration to eliminate the interference. This process will be done on all areas where the mylar paper left color on the tooth until the teeth meet together in a proper position.
