Restore Proper Chewing & Comfort With Advanced Treatments
A bite adjustment, or occlusal adjustment, adjusts the height and shape of your teeth to facilitate proper contact of the upper and lower jaws and reduce pressure on the uneven teeth. A bite adjustment in Fort Mill, SC, is sometimes needed after treatment with braces to alleviate pain, hyper-sensitivity, joint problems, and headaches.
What Happens During an Adjustment?
This procedure is generally quick and simple. Our dentist will have you bite down on a piece of paper that transfers a dye to the surfaces of your teeth to identify where the teeth make contact (and where they need to be adjusted). After, the teeth will be filed down slowly until the bite is corrected.

If you have any of the following symptoms, contact us right away. We can evaluate your teeth and see if a bite adjustment is needed:
- Worn, broken teeth
