Occlusal Guards and Treatment

Occlusal Adjustment:

Proper functioning of the jaws and teeth is often hindered by malocclusion (a bad bite). Adjustments to the bite can be made so that your teeth fit together properly for chewing and swallowing.

Minor polishing of the enamel surfaces or fillings of the teeth can help redistribute and redirect the biting forces.

Occlusal Guards:

Many people clench and grind their teeth causing muscle soreness, headaches, or short worn out teeth. Occlusal guards can be custom made to protect teeth from excessive grinding forces and stabilize the bite while minimizing further damage to the teeth.
