Occlusal Orthotic

Occlusal Orthotic – 

This acrylic mouthguard can be designed from teeth impressions to cover the biting surfaces of your teeth to minimize the abrasive grinding action, while also supporting a joint that is already showing signs of derrangement (pain, popping, clicking, locking open or closed) Occlusal Orthotics  are expected to be worn on a long-term basis to help prevent tooth damage and to help heal TMJ disorders (jaw joint disorders).

Occlusal and TMJ stability

Once bruxing is under control, we can perform a variety of dental procedures to restore the function of your jaw, and teeth, and restore the pleasant aesthetic appearance to your smile with means of orthodontics, porcelain crowns, gum grafts and crown lengthening. Jaw surgery is only recommended if it is necessary to help improve optimal function.
