In Dentistry, we call the way your teeth come together Dental Occlusion. You may refer to it as your “Bite”. Many things can influence occlusion. If you have a tooth missing, the other teeth in your mouth will shift and alter your bite. Perhaps you have a tooth that is worn,from clenching or grinding. Maybe there is decay on the biting surface or between teeth that has caused your teeth to move. Perhaps you have periodontal disease, or have suffered a trauma to your face that is affecting your bite. And sometimes, it is just the luck of the draw, and you may genetically have poor occlusion. Don’t despair. If you are suffering from poor occlusion, let us help. There is so much we can do to help your teeth come together properly.
