If you have a poor bite, then come and see Dr. Norman B. Fine so he can fix it with bite adjustment. We offer many procedures at Fine Periodontics which can align a bad bite and straighten crooked teeth for a healthier smile. Please call our periodontist if you would like to benefit from our help as we provide bite adjustment in Greenville and Anderson, South Carolina.
If you suffer from malocclusion (the misalignment of the upper and lower teeth), then you may develop other problems such as tooth wear, looseness, or problems with the TMJ. At Fine Periodontics, we offer several procedures that can fix a bad bite, including the following:
- Reshaping the chewing surface of your teeth. We can do this by either removing tissues or restoring them with bonding. By changing the chewing surface of your teeth, the pressure from bite forces will be evenly distributed.
- Braces can align crooked teeth into their proper position, so when you close your mouth, your teeth will come together correctly.
- Bite splint therapy keeps your teeth apart during the day, while you sleep, or at both of these times. We will determine the length of time depending on the severity of your bite problems.
- Restorations can renew tooth structure to ensure that it supports your bite. We will either replace old and damaged fillings, or we can restore worn and broken teeth with dental crowns.
