Occlusion therapy deals with the way your teeth fit together when chewing, biting or at rest. If your bite is unbalanced it can cause a variety of problems such as:
- clenching or grinding
- teeth that chip, crack or break
- sore or sensitive teeth
- jaw pain
- neck and upper back pain
If left untreated it can lead to more serious problems such as TMD.
Using the innovative technology of the T-Scan occlusal system Dr. Clifford can analyze and correct your bite to prevent any further problems.
If you clench or grind your teeth (commonly referred to as bruxism) we can fabricate a custom mouth guard to protect your teeth. As you clench or grind you are putting extreme pressure on your teeth, which can cause cracks or breaks in teeth or restorations, or worn down teeth. The custom guard corrects your bite and protects your teeth from possible damage.
