Bite Adjustments in Hudson, MA

Eliminate Pain from Bite Issues with the Proper Alignment of Your Teeth

Occlusion refers to the way your teeth align. Your teeth should be straight and properly aligned, with the upper jaw just slightly overlapping the lower jaw. Malocclusion, on the other hand, is the condition where the teeth don’t come together properly, leading to issues with your bite. There are different types of malocclusion, depending on the way your teeth are misaligned. Malocclusion can lead to oral health complications, cause teeth and jaw pain, shifting teeth, and facial structure changes. At Amirian Dental, our dentists have the experience to perform bite adjustments in Hudson, MA, so your teeth align properly.

Types of Malocclusion

Overbite – The upper jaw significantly overlaps the lower jaw, leaving a large gap in between the teeth

Underbite – The lower jaw overlaps the upper jaw and protrudes outward, leading to a change in the shape of the face

Crossbite – One or more teeth on one side of the jaw do not correspond to the tooth on the other side

What Causes Malocclusion?

There are some risk factors for malocclusion, but most cases are caused by genetic factors, abnormal tooth growth, as the result of an injury, or if you’ve had dental treatments such as a crown, bridge, filling, or tooth extraction. When your jaws aren’t aligned correctly, it means your neck and jaw never relax completely. A continually tense jaw and neck can lead to severe headaches, tooth pain, and neck pain. Some patients may develop bruxism, or teeth grinding during their sleep, and eventually, temporomandibular joint issues (TMJ).

Signs of Malocclusion

Some signs of malocclusion include:

  • Uneven closing of the jaw on both sides
  • Popping or clicking noises when opening or closing your mouth
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Fractured teeth

Our Process

Our expert will perform a bite test to determine your malocclusion. She will then smooth the necessary areas by removing some of the tooth or restoration to eliminate the interference. This process will be performed in all areas until your teeth meet together in a properly aligned position.
