An uneven bite doesn’t just affect the appearance of your smile.
An overbite or underbite can lead to pain while chewing, uneven wear of tooth enamel, and even TMJ disorder.
Fortunately, our dentists are able to perform a Tekscan™ bite adjustment to determine the best way to align your teeth and jaws.
About Tekscan Bite Adjustment
Before we plan any kind of orthodontic treatment, it’s important that we understand the relationship between your upper and lower teeth while you bite down, chew, and rest. Instead of using articulating paper to evaluate your bite, we’re able to use highly computerized bite analysis for accurate results.
We’re also able to use Tekscan to check how your new fillings, dental crowns, and other restorations fit over teeth. Our dentists want to make sure that your new tooth restoration fits comfortably and doesn’t interfere with your bite. If you feel pain or discomfort while chewing, schedule a dentist appointment with us as soon as possible to evaluate your bite.
Our Livonia dentists are always looking for the latest technology (like Tekscan bite adjustment) to improve dental care. To schedule your next dentist appointment with us, or to learn more about Tekscan, call Livonia Family Smiles at (734) 525-6100.
