Compared to other treatments for TMJ pain, occlusal equilibration treatment is minimally invasive.
Our Wyoming TMJ dentist carefully reshapes the biting surfaces of individual teeth so that your upper teeth can rest naturally on top of lower teeth without causing pain.
If there is pressure exerted on a few specific teeth, this procedure can help eliminate jaw pain and headaches by giving you an even bite.
Patients who benefit from occlusal equilibrations usually experience:
- TMJ pain
- TMJ headaches
- Worn tooth enamel
- Receding gums
- Loose teeth
- Chipped teeth
Occlusal adjustment balances your bite by making all of your teeth contact at the same time. Many of our patients notice a difference after one treatment session. You will most likely need to visit our office three times for bite adjustment with each visit spaced about two weeks apart. You won’t need to worry about any changes in the appearance of your teeth. Our Wyoming occlusal equilibration dentist carefully reshapes the small divots and valleys on the biting surface of your teeth.
Dr. Helmus DDS at River Ridge Family & Cosmetic Dentistry strives to help patients maintain healthy smiles for life. If you are interested in learning more about occlusal equilibrations, call our Wyoming natural dentistry at (616) 538-7320.
