An occlusal adjustment is a way of correcting interferences in your bite. Sometimes, your bite may feel uncomfortable to you. This can be caused by changes in your teeth. Whether due to a new crown or filling that sticks up farther than your natural tooth did or as a byproduct of bruxism wearing down one side of your tooth structure, occlusal adjustment can be utilized to make your teeth fit together comfortably again. Dr. D’Orazio will evaluate where your teeth come together using Mylar paper to mark the points of contact. He can then file down the higher points until your bite feels comfortable again.
