Occlusal Therapy | Dentist in SurreyOcclusal Therapy

The way in which teeth meet together is called occlusion or bite. When there are discrepancies with the bite this can cause problems such as:

  • Toothache and premature tooth wear
  • Pain, clicking or locking of the jaw joint
  • Tenderness of the facial muscles which sometimes extends to the neck or shoulders
  • Headaches

With occlusal therapies such as occlusal adjustments and splint therapy we can reduce these symptoms and usually resolve the problem.
