Occlusal Adjustment

Occlusal adjustment is the scientific grinding and/or reshaping of the occluding surfaces (grinding surfaces) of teeth to develop and improve upon their harmonious relationships between each other, their supporting structures, muscles of mastication, and temporomandibular joints.

The reason to receive an occlusal adjustment is to correct the alignment of the bite. A bite may be misaligned due to loose, shifting, crowded, or missing teeth. Once the adjustment is made the result will be an evenly distributed bite that eliminates irregular pressure on one side of the mouth.
