Ensuring a balanced bite in Bearsted, Kent
Dental occlusion is another name for the way your upper and lower teeth meet when your jaws bite together. Your dental occlusion can, if imbalanced or interrupted, cause heavy wear on your teeth, exacerbate gum problems, and wreak havoc on the joints and muscles connecting your lower jaw to your skull.
If you are experiencing clicking or grinding pain in your jaw joints, ringing or buzzing in your ears, or difficult in opening or closing your mouth, this could all be because of incorrect occlusion. Luckily, our very own dentist Simon Courtney has a special interest in dental occlusion and will help address your issues.
