What is Occlusal Adjustment?
An occlusal adjustment is a dental procedure designed to refine the way your upper and lower teeth come together, creating a more harmonious bite. This treatment can alleviate discomfort and functional issues that arise from an imbalanced bite, improving your oral well-being.
Why Choose Occlusal Adjustment?
- Enhanced Comfort: An aligned bite reduces discomfort and alleviates strain on your jaw muscles.
- Optimal Oral Health: By achieving a balanced bite, you decrease the risk of developing dental issues like tooth decay or gum disease, as it becomes easier to maintain effective oral hygiene.
- Longevity of Teeth: Incorrect bites can cause uneven wear and tear on teeth, which may lead to long-term dental issues. Occlusal adjustment aims to prevent this.
The Procedure Explained
The process is usually quick and requires minimal intervention. Our dental professionals at Portal Dental Pasadena use state-of-the-art equipment to gently reshape the biting surfaces of your teeth to achieve the perfect bite. Depending on the complexity, you may need one or more visits to complete the adjustment.
