BITE PROBLEMS (OCCLUSAL PROBLEMS)
Do you have a bite problem?
Do you have an increased sense (awareness) that you are constantly clenching?
Is your bite driving you crazy?
You have already started comprehensive crown treatment, yet the bite does not feel right and you are afraid to proceed to the final crowns?
You have already been to many dentist and are not sure what to do after your FM dentistry is done?
There are many people who have found themselves in the middle or at the completion of comprehensive restorative treatment and their bites do not feel right. They are worried and confused after the doctor can't find anything wrong.
Some of the bothering symptoms may be:
- They complain that they can't find their bite (multiple bites)
- Increased irritating sense that something is dramatically wrong with the bite, but the bite may appear correct.
- Chipping crowns and teeth
- Clicking and popping in the jaw joints
- Ear congestion (stuffy pressure) feelings
- Teeth sensitivity
- Recommended need for more root canal therapy
- Many crowns have been restored and the bite feels like "marbles".
- Difficult to bite firmly
We are experienced at helping those who have found themselves in the middle of this dental nightmare, feeling that there is no hope after having multiple bite adjustment visits. You may have been treated with:
- Many unresolved bite adjustment visits.
- Equilibrations by traditional occlusal techniques.
- You may have been placed back in temporary crowns and bridges.
- You may have had the crowns redone for the second and third time.
- You have tried competent restorative clinicians who treated you with:
Centric Relation Occlusal Concepts
- Teeth are adjusted (equilibrated) while laying back manually.
- Face/ear bow registrations
- Hinge axis recordings using dental articulators
- Manual jaw manipulation methods in a laying down/supine position to capture the bite.
- Anterior discluders and deprogrammers
- Flat plane splints
Neuromuscular Occlusal Concepts
- Teeth have been adjusted with and without TENS (Transcutaneous Electro Neural Stimulation)
- Fixed orthotic therapy bonded on the teeth with multiple adjustments
- Arches of teeth have been treated with porcelain crowns and multiple adjustments.
- The use of bio-instrumentation and (Myotronics K7 - EMG and CMS technology, BioResearch JVA, BioPak and EMG technology).
- Orthosis - Removable (anatomical) or fixed (bonded - semi-permanent).
- Flat Splints
