There are a number of factors that can affect the health and appearance of your smile. One of those factors is the way your teeth come together, which is referred to as your bite. Problems with your bite can result in damage to your teeth and gums. Often this issue may be so slight that you do not notice it until the problems become apparent. However, there are some symptoms that may indicate that you could benefit from bite adjustment in Woodland Hills, California. Those symptoms can include:
- A feeling that your bite is off when you chew
- Jaw pain
- Chips or cracks in your teeth
- Worn teeth
This problem can be caused by:
- Teeth that are the wrong shape
- Overcrowding in your mouth
- Loose teeth
- Missing teeth
- Teeth that have drifted out of their proper positions.
Our dentists can make minor adjustments to the shape of your teeth and enamel to help you achieve a healthy, well-aligned bite. This is a very easy treatment that can be done in a single visit and usually does not require any anesthetic.
