Stepping into the new year, I wanted to whiten my teeth and rediscover the confident smile I once had. I decided to seek the help of the Periodontal Associates of Mississauga to restore my smile back to its original brightness. While I was having my assessment, the Periodontists recommended that I explore a procedure referred to as bite adjustment. My bite was slightly uneven, and having it restored would realign my teeth to their proper position. I always knew that my bite was not properly aligned, and it would greatly benefit me to work with a friendly and knowledgeable Periodontist to set it straight.
Bite adjustment is a procedure that is recommended for anyone who has a bite that is slightly off balance. Over time, this can happen for a variety of reasons including:
- Damaged teeth
- Gaps in teeth
- Mal-aligned teeth
- Dental work that has shifted over time
Once a bite adjustment is complete, your bite will feel even, and you will notice an improvement in your ability to eat
As well, an uneven bite can be one of the causes of teeth grinding which can result in painful headaches and jaw discomfort. Going through a bite adjustment procedure will often relieve any pain and discomfort as well as improve your self-esteem.
The friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable staff at the Periodontal Associates of Mississauga office provide a full assessment of your teeth and gums to determine if your bite is aligned properly. They will also suggest any additional procedures, including cosmetic dentistry procedures, that would help to restore your brilliant smile. The first visit will consist of an assessment of your overall oral health and a recommended long-term plan to ensure you maintain gorgeous teeth and gums throughout your lifetime.
