Do you wake up with a sore jaw or experience pain when you bite or chew? If this is the case, occlusal dentistry may be a good option for you. Occlusal dental treatments focus on your bite and jaw to alleviate discomfort and restore your ability to chew and speak easily and normally. Some common symptoms that may indicate that you need occlusal treatments are:
• Chronic jaw pain
• Uneven or excessive tooth wear
• Chipped or cracked teeth
• Frequent migraines or headaches
• Feeling that your bite is lopsided or “off”
Your bite may become misaligned or off-balance due to any number of factors, including loose or shifting teeth, overcrowded teeth, missing teeth, or irregularly shaped teeth. When you visit our office, our dentist will examine your entire jaw and mouth to determine the cause of your problem and which treatment or combination of treatments will be most effective in restoring your teeth and mouth to full function.
