Did You Know?

Occlusal disease is an imbalance, deformation, or disturbance in function between the teeth, chewing muscles, and jaw.  Symptoms of occlusal disease include:

  • Worn, cracked, or chipped teeth
  • Sensitivity to hot, cold, or both
  • Moveable or loose teeth
  • Jaw pain
  • Teeth grinding, clenching
  • Recessive gums
  • Bone loss around teeth
  • Jaw or tooth pain when chewing

Occlusal disease is the most undiagnosed dental disorder until severe damage becomes too obvious to ignore.  If you are having any of the above symptoms, contact us today to schedule an appointment for a complete evaluation.  Drs.
