This painless procedure is the modification (slight reshaping) of the biting surfaces of the teeth in order to develop a harmonious relationship between the teeth, jaw muscles and temporal mandibular joints.
When teeth don't fit ideally and one or more teeth touch harder than another, there are significant consequences which may include: teeth becoming loose, chipped, pre-mature wearing, sensitive, jaw pain, headaches, muscle tenderness, etc...
It may or may not take more than one Occlusal Adjustment to get the desired results.
