Although occlusal disease has many causes the two main problems are having an unbalanced bite and premature tooth wear from involuntary teeth grinding (bruxism).
Dr. Matiasevich has advanced training in occlusion, TMJ, and bite disorders and can help you avoid costly consequences.
Even for people who grind their teeth uncontrollably, having a balanced bite is beneficial. Less damage is caused when you have an even bite that disperses forces more uniformly. Just like tires on your car, if properly balanced, you will have a longer tread life, so having your bite balanced will mean a healthier future for you and your teeth. In addition, wearing a mouth guard is the most basic way to protect the teeth from damage.
