Bite Adjustment

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, worn during the day, at 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.

Patient Review by Janet L

I had an exceptional experience at La Jolla Dental Boutique with all the procedures I had done, including teeth cleaning, x-rays and an exam with Dr. Irene, replacement of old fillings, an extraction, and an implant. The staff is very friendly, informative and easy to work with. The hygienist performed the most thorough cleaning I can ever remember having! I scheduled an appointment to replace some old fillings and I am very pleased with the result! I later had a tooth extraction and was nervous, but Dr. Irene made it seem easy. She is kind and made sure to explain the procedures as well as aftercare. She has a gentle touch and really put me at ease. At another appointment, Dr. Erez performed an implant for me under sedation. The sedation and the procedure were both successful! I did not experience any discomfort during the procedure and I have gone on to heal without incident. The assistants in the office are so nice and they all seem to work well together! I can highly recommend La Jolla Dental Boutique for your dental care.

Highly recommend Other than heaving a great dentist as dr Irene, who worked Magic’s with the digital crowns The ability to have a team of restorative dentist and a periodontist , dr Erez Nosrati who removed the teeth and installed the implants gave me an amazing experience during the entire treatment.
