Typically, when we discuss a “bad bite,” we’re talking about the problems that can be resolved with aligners or braces. However, the jaw joints and muscles can also cause problems. In these situations, equilibration and bite balance can help.
What to Expect
The exact nature of bite balance is going to vary based on the nature of your current bite. We start by taking a careful look at it, determining what’s causing your misbalanced bite pressure. We then create a model to help us determine the areas where we can best address this misbalance.
In some cases, we may need to add material , in other cases we may need to remove the pressure points. Either way, the goal is to get your bite to a place where you can eat, sleep, and speak comfortably.
