Worried About Your Bite Adjustment Procedure? Trust Dr. Sevor
Are you in need of a bite adjustment procedure? Many people are! It’s important for a number of reasons that your teeth are aligned properly. A bite adjustment procedure can help you to quickly and easily enjoy the benefits of a better-aligned bite, including being able to practice proper oral hygiene. Let’s take a closer look at bite adjustment procedures, and how Dr. Sevor at Central Florida Periodontics can help get you the treatment you need.
Who Needs a Bite Adjustment Procedure?
Bite adjustment procedures are designed to address the way your teeth align naturally when your mouth is shut. They are intended to help anyone who has an irregular bite. If you have an irregular bite, you may or may not have noticed. For some, having an irregular bite can cause daily hassles, making it difficult to chew properly. For others, the issue is more subtle – you may only notice that it’s more difficult to floss in certain areas.
Why is it Important to Undergo a Bite Adjustment Procedure?
Some patients (especially those who consider it to be a minor issue) having a bite adjustment procedure can seem like a bother. Why put up with the recovery time and expense when you don’t mind living with the symptoms? These patients should know that choosing not to receive the treatment they need can lead to big problems later. Premature wearing of the teeth, tooth loss, gum disease, and TMJ disorder are a few of the potential consequences for allowing an irregular bite to worsen.
How Can Dr. Sevor Help?
Dr. Sevor has been a practicing periodontist for years, and offers a number of bite adjustment procedures right from the office. He, along with our entire staff, work hard to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable as possible, and that an option is chosen that works for your budget as well as your unique needs. A few of the treatments he offers for an irregular bite include:
- Braces: Braces are a great traditional option for correcting misaligned teeth. Over time, they’ll shift your teeth into proper alignment. There are a number of great braces options available today, from traditional metal braces to more subtle plastic options.
- Bite guards: Bite guards help patients to avoid grinding their teeth, thereby reducing the amount of strain and wear that’s put on them. Dr. Sevor can design a bite guard just for you that will help to make your bite more comfortable.
- Tooth Reshaping: In some cases, patients need their teeth to be reshaped in order to practice good oral hygiene. In this procedure, Dr. Sevor will meticulously reshape the surface of teeth in order to help them make better contact with one another. This will allow patients to practice better oral hygiene, as well as live more comfortably.
These are just three common bite adjustment procedures that we offer at Central Florida Periodontics. We’ll work with you to determine which of the many treatment options is right for you.
