A bite is considered to be healthy when all or most of the teeth are present and not destroyed by normal daily usage.
It is destructive when teeth show wear, looseness or when TMJ (jaw joint) damage is seen. Bite therapy helps restore a bite that can function without damage and destruction. The therapy may include:
- Reshaping the biting surfaces of the teeth and eliminating spots of excessive pressures where the teeth are brought into contact. This is done by carefully dividing bite pressures evenly across all of the teeth.
- Bite splint therapy using a custom-fitted and adjusted plastic bite guard to keep the teeth apart, day, night, or both.
- Braces to reposition mal-aligned or drifted teeth.
- Replacement of old, worn out, or damaged fillings
- Reconstruction of badly worn and damaged teeth.

I was so nervous to schedule this appointment after my regular dentist referred me, as I'm kind of a dental "chicken". But from the first day I scheduled, throughout my consultation and treatment all of the office staff and doctor put me at ease. I worried needlessly, and wished i had made my appointment sooner! You will be in good hands with Dr. Rubinoff and staff!
