Occlusal (Bite) Adjustment
During your examination for Occlusal (Bite) Adjustment, your doctor will examine your jaw closely and evaluate for signs that your bite may be incorrect. Some signs include the uneven closing of the jaw on both sides, popping or clicking noises upon opening or closing; wear facets in areas where the enamel has been ground away, or fractured teeth. Chronic symptoms of bruxism, such as headaches, neck aches, or jaw pain, are also clues that the bite may be disturbed.
Before the procedure begins, your dentist will have you bite on a very thin piece of colored paper. The paper transfers color to the areas where contact occurs. The doctor will then smooth the area where the marks have been left by removing just enough of the tooth or restoration to eliminate the interference. This process will be done on all areas where the paper left color on the tooth until the teeth meet together in a proper position.
