About Occlusion in Jupiter, FL

A Balanced Bite Brings Health and Harmony to Your Smile

What Is Occlusion?

Occlusion is how your upper and lower teeth come together when you bite down. Any discrepancies on the chewing surfaces of your teeth, even those minor, cause an imbalance between the arches, and a host of other oral concerns.

Beware the Problems With Improper Occlusion

  • Jaw pain and TMJ problems
  • Occlusal trauma or wear
  • Broken or loose teeth
  • Damage to fillings, crowns, bridges and implants
  • Pain or discomfort with chewing
  • Gum recession
  • Tooth pain or sensitivity
  • Chronic headaches
  • Jaw, neck and shoulder pain
  • Sleep apnea
