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.

What treatments are available?

It depends on your individual occlusion problem. Braces can be used to bring your bite into alignment. Mouth guards will help you from wearing down your teeth when you grind them. Replacement teeth will prevent your bite from becoming unbalanced.

There's always a warm welcome from all staff at Down House Dental Practice. I've been a patient for many years. My present dentist is gentle and most reassuring. I've had a few different treatments and nothing is too much trouble. After a particularly difficult session i had a call from Claire (dentist) to see how I was. Both Claire and her nurse, Catherine are professional and sympathetic and I know I'm in very safe hands. Not forgetting Tesh, the hygienist who is always so efficient and gives great advice and care. Thank you Down House Surgery, you are a great team.
