31 Services ( View All )

Overview

If your teeth do not fit together properly, it may be damaging to your gums and teeth, and can also result in discomfort in your jaw. An analysis of your bite is done to determine if you have a poor bite or a dental malocclusion. To complete a bite evaluation, our practitioners utilize innovative technologies at our practice in Buford, GA to ascertain how much pressure is exerted by every tooth. A bite analysis could identify when you have a crossbite, overbite, or underbite. We also assess your muscles, jaw, and teeth as a whole to try to find any underlying difficulties, which might be brought on by a poor bite. If not handled correctly, a poor bite may result in future issues, which could be debilitating or painful, which is why it's crucial to get a diagnosis once you have a painful or uncomfortable bite. To get a bite analysis, contact Buford Family Dentistry.

Best Candidates

There are many reasons to get a bite analysis and decide whether a certain disorder is present. Several of the most typical symptoms include broken, chipped, cracked, or crooked teeth, pain while chewing, chronic jaw aches or headaches, inflamed or rigid jaw, or receding gums. Sometimes a misaligned bite may result in teeth grinding, also called bruxism, which may cause additional pain along with a reduction of dental enamel.

What to Expect

A bite analysis typically includes electronic imaging, a 3D oral scan, and a bite study, along with a physical evaluation from one of our experienced practitioners. Once our team diagnoses the issue, there are a couple of treatment methods based on the intensity of your circumstance. In more moderate instances, we can recommend a nighttime dental guard to protect your teeth, though a more serious problem may need operative therapy.

Follow-Up

If you experience problems with your alignment, it's essential to continue to schedule regular dental exams at Buford Family Dentistry. Our practitioners and general dentists will be able to evaluate your teeth and jaw for further issues. It's also wise to continue to keep up a regular dental hygiene routine, including daily flossing, brushing, and mouthwash.

Insurance Coverage

Your cost for a bite evaluation depends on the sort of imaging that's used. Before your bite analysis, our financial staff will get in touch with your insurance provider to ascertain what could be covered and if there will be any extra expenses. Buford Family Dentistry takes many payment options and we will be able to help you to find low-interest medical financing so that your therapy is affordable.
