In choosing a dentist, it is important they have a thorough understanding of occlusion “bite”. Occlusion is the foundation for everything a dentist does involving teeth. When occlusion is not in harmony patients can experience sore teeth, sore muscles, chronic tension headaches, breakage of veneers, and orofacial pain.
Occlusal equilibration is one of the most important clinical skills that are essential for patient care. Unfortunately, too many dentists are lacking this important skill, and the patients pay dearly for that shortcoming.
If you have a situation where your teeth have become loose, you notice a lot of wear, you are breaking your dental restorations, then you are probably suffering from occlusal disease, and damage to the biting surface.
