Occlusal Evaluations

Occlusal evaluations are needed to diagnose bite and jaw abnormalities. As a result, we can treat these defects, which can help restore your biting function and prevent progression of periodontal disease.

During your very first visit, an occlusal evaluation will be performed. This examination will check for a “bad bite” or malocclusion.

This can also cause headaches, migraines, muscle tightness in jaw and skull, and more. Occlusal EvaluationEven though the teeth may appear straight, they may not align in a way that is correct. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is also evaluated and injuries to the joint can be treated to prevent further damage.
