This procedure makes corrections to the bite associated with loose, shifting teeth or teeth that are biting too hard. Balancing and evenly distributing the biting and chewing forces on a tooth will make your teeth tighten up. The bite adjustment will relieve excessive pressures on the supporting gum and bone structures, as well. The pictures below show the damage an out of balance bite can cause. The damage can be treated, however the cause needs to be treated or the grooves will re-occur below the bonding. When we adjust the bite, it is not necessary to give anesthetic. It takes 30-60 minutes to do. Most insurances cover it.
