Occlusal disease can cause serious damage to your teeth and the bones that create the structure of your gums. To avoid any further damage, book your appointment today.
Occlusal disease is caused by a misalignment or incorrect relation between the teeth of the upper and lower dental arches, also called malocclusion. If left untreated, occlusal disease can damage your teeth, the supporting bones and gums around your teeth, temporomandibular joints, and the jaw muscles you use for chewing.
Many people dismiss excessive or abnormally accelerated tooth wear as “natural aging or wearing” of teeth, but your dentist can provide treatment to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by occlusal disease.

- Enamel wear
- Tooth cracking or breakage
- Tooth sensitivity
- Gum recession
