OCCLUSION (BITE) PROBLEMS
A HEALTHY BITING-PATTERN HAS MINIMAL TOOTHWEAR + MOBILITY
AND PAIN-FREE MUSCLES + JAW JOINTS
A MISALIGNED BITE CAN CAUSE A CHAIN-REACTION OF DISCOMFORT
How our teeth fit together and how we chew is our “occlusion” or our “bite”. When your bite is off, you can experience discomfort while talking and chewing, pain through your jaw joints, headaches, and even neck and shoulder pain. Your comprehensive exam includes an evaluation of your teeth, your jaw muscles, and jaw joints. A series of questions will also help us diagnose bite problems.
