Occlusal disease occurs when there is an incorrect relation or misalignment between the teeth of your upper and lower dental arches. A malocclusion, or bad bite, affects your ability to perform daily oral functions such as chewing, and if untreated, it can eventually cause damage to your teeth and supporting oral structures. During your initial consultation, our dentists will thoroughly examine your mouth and jaw to determine if you have occlusal disease and what treatments may be needed to restore your oral health.
Common signs of occlusal disease include:
- Cracked and broken teeth
- Worn tooth enamel
- Increased tooth sensitivity
- Muscle pain
- Gum recession
- Loss of supporting bone tissue
- TMJ symptoms, including cracking or popping sounds when moving the jaw, a locked jaw, and pain or discomfort when chewing or speaking
We will discuss your treatment options with you prior to providing any treatments. Our goal is to find the type of treatment that will provide you with the greatest long-term benefit for your oral health and smile.
