Benefits of an Occlusal Adjustment
For many patients, undergoing an occlusal adjustment (bite adjustment) can help to break the habit of grinding the teeth and improve jaw mobility. Some patients with TMJ need to undergo an occlusal adjustment to restore proper functioning of the jaw, in conjunction with other treatments or modalities designed to alleviate jaw pain. We also perform an occlusal adjustment after restorative or cosmetic procedures to ensure the teeth are coming together properly.
