Equilibration In Little Rock, Arkansas

If you are experiencing a bad bite, you may be a candidate for occlusal equilibration, also known as occlusal adjustment. This treatment is used to help improve your bite and keep your jaw in the correct anatomical position, relieving pain and preventing excessive wear on your teeth. We invite you to contact Cloud & Hill Dental Care today to learn more about occlusal Equilibration in Little Rock, Arkansas, and schedule a consultation with Dr. John Cloud or Dr. Nathaniel Hill, our experienced dentists.

Do you wake up with sore jaws or experience jaw pain when you bite and chew? If so, you may need an occlusal adjustment. An occlusal adjustment corrects the alignment of the bite. Common symptoms that signal the possible need for an occlusal adjustment include:

  • Chronic jaw pain
  • Uneven or excessive tooth wear
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Frequent headaches and migraines
  • The feeling that you have an occasional lopsided or “off” bite while chewing

These are indications that your bite may be off balance or misaligned. Your bite alignment may be off due to factors such as:

  • Loose teeth
  • Teeth that have shifted in your mouth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth

Our skilled dentist will perform the occlusal adjustment by removing any interference in your bite that causes an uneven bite, which in turn causes pain. In most cases, we simply need to make small shaping changes in the tooth enamel (the hard outer layer of the tooth) to achieve a more ideal bite. As the adjustments are minor and the tooth enamel has no feeling, the procedure is very comfortable and typically does not require anesthetic. If you are experiencing jaw pain, we encourage you to contact our office today to learn more and to set up your next appointment with our team.
