Treatment for Occlusal Disease
Treatment starts with making impression of your teeth to make replicas of your upper and lower teeth. Careful analysis of your bite is then performed with the help of an instrument called articulator (an instrument that simulates three dimensional jaw movements). At this point we can make a determination on the required treatment. The treatment depends upon the severity of the condition. The patient may also be offered a protective night guard as a basic preventive measure to decrease the damage being caused by Occlusal Disease. Occlusal equilibration or adjustment is sometimes performed with the belief that this will redistribute forces evenly across the dental arches and/or achieve a more favorable position of the condyles in the fossae.
