A dental occlusion describes the way a person’s upper and lower teeth mesh when the mouth is closed. If a patient needs an occlusal adjustment, it means their teeth don’t mesh properly. To setup an appointment at Dentalville Panorama City in Los Angeles, please call (818) 452-0045 today!
Occlusal adjustment procedures correct the way the teeth come together in the mouth. Such an adjustment evenly distributes the chewing force that a tooth experiences, eliminating extra pressure on the teeth, gums, and bones.

A few basic treatments exist to correct bite problems. Along with dental adjustments, some treatments for malocclusion issues may include:
During an occlusal adjustment, our dentist will reshape the teeth so that they mesh together more appropriately. Once your teeth touch each other properly, your bite problems should be solved. You should no longer grind your teeth or have headaches. Your tooth pain will be relieved, and your sensitive teeth even will be able to tolerate heat and cold once again. Contact Dentalville Panorama City today to discover your options for treating any occlusal problems you may have.
“I was sure I just needed a filling, but when I saw that my filling had almost completely fallen away with the wand that showed my smile on the monitor, it was obvious I would need a crown or face losing the whole tooth. I was able to get a special price on the crown which made things easier for me personally. I am glad for the help and thank Dentalville for working with me and providing great service and care. Will be back”
