Occlusal Disease

Occlusal disease is caused by the misalignment between the teeth of the upper and lower dental arches. 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.

  • Enamel wear
