Get Relief From Your Discomfort
In order to promote adequate contact of the upper and lower jaws and lessen pressure on uneven teeth, a bite adjustment, also known as an occlusal adjustment, modifies the height and shape of your teeth. Our dentists may recommend a bite adjustment in York, SC, after braces have been worn to cure discomfort, hypersensitivity, joint issues, and headaches.
What Happens During an Adjustment?
Usually, this process goes quickly and easily. To determine where the teeth make contact, our dentist will ask you to bite down on a piece of paper that transfers a dye to the surfaces of your teeth (and where they need to be adjusted). After that, the teeth will be gradually filed down to fix the bite.
When Is a Bite Adjustment Recommended?
Schedule an appointment with our team if you notice any of the following symptoms:
- Worn, broken teeth
- Pain or a popping sensation in the jaw joints
- Teeth sensitivity
- Headaches or migraines
What Are the Benefits?
You will be able to close your mouth properly after the surgery, chew more easily, and get relief from any dental-related discomfort. Your teeth will be shielded from further deterioration and your smile’s straightness will be maintained with a bite adjustment. If you believe you might require a bite correction, get in touch with us right away.
