I had a bite adjustment and I was wondering how many times you can have that done without causing damage. Also, if that does not work to correct the problem what would the next step possibly be?

  • It may take a number of visits to get the bite exactly right.It is important to note that once the bite is adjusted properly, your teeth may again in the future require some bite adjustment. If a comprehensive bite adjustment of all teeth is done, perhaps only a few teeth may require later adjustment. The reason for this is that over decades teeth can move slightly, teeth wear, etc., making the fit of teeth change some. It is always appropriate after the initial bite adjustment to monitor for further signs and symptoms, and to re-evaluate the effectiveness (reduction / elimination of symptoms) of the bite adjustment at future visits.You could go in for construction or fabrication of a Hawley bite plane along with an occlusal adjustment.This is especially indicated when teeth are very loose and to resolve headaches associated with grinding of the teeth.Muscle relaxers or anti-inflammatory medications can be used if the jaw muscles are tight, esp. during the night or when wakening up from sleep.
