When you bite, does it feel like you hit heavy in a certain area? If so, then you may need an occlusal adjustment.
A limited occlusal adjustment corrects the alignment of the bite that is typically the result of loose, shifting, crowded or missing teeth. The result is an evenly distributed bite that eliminates irregular pressure on one side of the mouth. Once your bite is adjusted, your teeth will meet properly.
Sometimes tooth sensitivity can be corrected through an occlusal adjustment as the treatment reduces pressure on the sensitive tooth.
