We understand that a balanced bite is foundational to not only your dental health but also your overall wellbeing. A balanced bite ensures that your teeth align correctly, reducing stress on your jaw muscles and preventing premature wear and tear on your teeth.

What is a Balanced Bite?

A balanced bite occurs when your teeth come together evenly without undue stress on any particular area. This alignment helps in preventing a range of complications, such as jaw pain, cracked teeth, and other dental issues.

Signs You Might Have an Unbalanced Bite

You may not always notice the signs of an unbalanced bite, much like a small rock in your shoe that you gradually get accustomed to. However, over time, this imbalance can lead to:

  • Increased jaw or muscle pain
  • Cracks or damage to the teeth
  • Bacterial infections leading to cavities or worse

Our Approach to Diagnosing and Correcting Bite Imbalances

At Bilski Dental, we employ modern diagnostic techniques to evaluate your bite accurately. Using specialized sensors and marking papers, our team can identify even slight discrepancies in how your teeth meet. This precise approach allows us to tailor a treatment plan that can correct the imbalance efficiently.

If an unbalanced bite is detected, we discuss various corrective options, including smile shaping. This method not only improves the functionality of your bite but also enhances the aesthetic appearance of your smile.
