Occlusal disease is one of the biggest causes of tooth loss. When your bite is improperly aligned, it puts undue pressure on many areas of your mouth. Learn how to spot occlusal disease and how to get treatment.
If you’re experiencing the following dental issues, you may be suffering from occlusal disease:
It’s important to speak with a dentist if you think you have occlusal disease. The earlier we find it, the less damage it has time to cause. Untreated occlusion can cause serious dental complications.
If you’re suffering from an occlusal disease, our first step is determining the exact nature of the problem. This allows us to determine exactly where your bite is misaligned and what needs to happen in order to realign it.
We have several procedures designed to address occlusion. Depending on what we find, we may recommend enameloplasty or equilibration . Along with helping to fix your bite, we can also help resolve damage caused by the occlusion in the first place.
Once the treatment is finished, your jaw and teeth should be properly aligned, and any issues you were experiencing should be fully resolved.
