Equilibration & Bite Balance in Solana Beach, California

Transforming The Experience of Dentistry Since 2000

Typically, when we discuss a “bad bite,” we’re talking about the problems that can be resolved with aligners  or braces. However, the jaw joints and muscles can also cause problems. In these situations, equilibration and bite balance can help.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Equilibration & Bite Balance?

There are several signs that indicate you may be a good candidate for this procedure:

  • Myalgia – If your bite isn’t balanced, it can put undue pressure on certain areas of your mouth, leading to soreness and pain.
  • Worn-down teeth – Just like misplaced pressure can tax your muscles, it can also wear down your teeth.
  • Bruxism – The discomfort that a bad bite causes can also lead you to grind your teeth, which worsens the issue.

If you suspect that you have a bad bite, you should visit an expert dentist. They’ll be able to examine your mouth and prescribe any necessary treatment.

What to Expect

The exact nature of bite balance is going to vary based on the nature of your current bite. We start by taking a careful look at it, determining what’s causing your misbalanced bite pressure. We then create a model to help us determine the areas where we can best address this misbalance.

In some cases, we may need to add material , in other cases we may need to remove the pressure points. Either way, the goal is to get your bite to a place where you can eat, sleep, and speak comfortably.
