Bite Reconstruction

Sometimes the way your teeth come together when eating or swallowing can cause damage to the teeth. An evaluation of the way you bite is conducted and a plan is coordinated to stop the damage. Orthodontics (braces), tooth equilibrating, and tooth recontouring are options that are considered. Simple steps like adjusting the bite to more complex treatments like braces, crowns, implants or bridges may be necessary. A splint is made many times to help align the jaw in the joint prior to treatments.
