Every time you close your mouth or bite down to bring your teeth together, there should be a healthy distribution of forces. Additionally, your top teeth should contact the bottom teeth during jaw movement in a functionally harmonious way. Having any premature or uneven contact between the upper and lower teeth can lead to unhealthy jaw deviations when biting as well as other symptoms of soreness or discomfort.
Bite correction therapy includes the correction of uneven contacts along with the reduction of bite interferences to restore a healthy distribution of forces to your teeth as they function. It may involve minor, selective filing and reshaping of the occlusal or incisal surfaces (biting surfaces) of specific teeth. This type of adjustment may be performed on a single tooth, or multiple teeth as needed. Other therapeutic methods of bite correction therapy may include, a removable occlusal guard, or the replacement of restorations.
