Have you been experiencing the following symptoms: jaw pain, sore facial muscles, teeth grinding and clenching, worn or broken teeth, difficulty eating, mouth breathing, or headaches? These are all common consequences of malocclusion, or a “bad” bite. This condition can develop as a result of misaligned teeth and facial asymmetry or be the result of a dental crown or cavity filling that has unbalanced your smile. Your teeth are designed to fit together like gears and work in harmony with each other for comfortable biting and chewing. If your top and bottom teeth don’t come together properly (malocclusion), some teeth will touch before others and result in improper distribution of force and pressure.
This imbalance in your occlusion, or bite, will lead to numerous short- and long-term consequences that affect your dental function and overall comfort. A customized occlusal adjustment in Dansville, VA can effectively treat your symptoms and provide a permanent improvement in your oral function. This procedure requires a wealth of knowledge in dental occlusion and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) function to provide truly beneficial and lasting results. With extensive training and experience in occlusal adjustments, our dentist and dental team at VSP Dental are qualified to treat the root cause of your symptoms and help you find long-term comfort and health with this targeted treatment.
