Dental Occlusion

Unbalanced Bite

Many problems can arise from an unbalanced bite (referred to clinically as dental occlusion), and can cause a great deal of pain for a patient if left untreated. Patients suffer for a long time without realizing that their pain could be easily fixed through occlusal adjustment, or bite correction.

A patient experiencing headaches, stiffness in the jaw, sensitive teeth, or neck and back pain should have their dentist check their bite for any problems. Restorations and crowns can change the bite and can lead to problems if the bite is not equilibrated correctly.
