Dental Occlusion Treatments in Steyning, Sussex

If your teeth, fillings or crowns keep breaking, or you discover your teeth are loose, this could be due to occlusion problems. Do you suffer from headaches, jawache, neckache, pain when you open or close your mouth, or mouth stiffness? These are all symptoms of occlusion complaints. Dental occlusion is the medical term for the way in which your upper and lower teeth meet, otherwise known as your bite. Bite problems are very common, but treatable.

Solutions for tooth grinding and orthodontic issues

Dental Occlusion Treatments in Steyning, SussexThe most common treatments for alleviating the pain, frustration and damaged teeth associated with occlusion problems include restoring broken or missing teeth, having teeth adjusted to meet more evenly and wearing braces. Mouth guards also help occlusion problems by alleviating damage cause by bruxing; the clenching and grinding of your teeth.

  • Resolves persistent headaches and jawache
  • Discreet, effective alignment treatment
  • Replacement teeth prevent unbalanced bites
  • Put a halt to broken teeth
  • Improve your smile

Grinding your teeth, either when you sleep, or in stressful situations is another bite problem. Having missing teeth can lead naturally to an unbalanced bite. You may have an overbite, underbite crossbite or open bite; all of these terms refer to the problem of your teeth not meeting each other ideally in your mouth.

If your bite is causing you pain, stiffness, muscle ache or is wearing down and breaking your teeth, it’s advisable to seek treatment. We can assess and advise on your bite during your initial consultation with us. If you do need tooth alignment, a mouthguard, or replacement teeth to solve your bite issues, we can help.

This review is for Tesh the hygenist. I honestly can't recommend Tesh more highly. He is incredibly thorough and clearly knows what he's doing. Tesh is so good I have upped the amount of times I see him to every four months rather than every six. He keeps detailed notes of every visit so he can carefully track how I'm doing and help me target specific areas of concern. As I am getting older keeping my gums healthy becomes more important as I really want to keep as many teeth as possible in old age! Tesh is always upbeat, very encouraging and also keen to know how I and my family are doing.
