What is Dental Occlusion? 

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums can be considered the most important component of dental care, but ensuring a balanced distribution of force during biting is also an important aspect of oral health. Dental occlusion assessments can identify previously undiagnosed dental disorders that could be impacting your oral and overall health. Without a properly aligned bite, the uneven pressure applied during biting begins to create problems with the teeth, muscles, and jaw joints and misaligned jaws can also have a significant impact on airway health and sleep disordered breathing.

TScan™ Digital Scanning

One of the most common diagnostic tools to understand the relationship of the teeth during movements such as eating and speaking is using occlusal marking film. The marking film is placed between the teeth as you bite and move the teeth as directed. The resulting marking variations indicate the precise places where the biting force is too great.

At Dental Partners of Vero Beach, we use TScan™ advanced technology to efficiently and accurately assess occlusal alignment and achieve optimal bite comfort. By using the intraoral T-Scan™, our team can utilize one of the finest restoration technologies available, making our patients’ dental visits less time-consuming and more pleasant.

Treatment Solutions

Custom Occlusal Appliances. Our office can also use 3D printing technology to create occlusal appliances that apply light force to retrain muscle function and naturally align the teeth for optimal bite force.

Airway Orthodontics. We also offer orthodontic treatments such as braces or clear aligners to help straighten the teeth, restore balance, and improve airway health.

Myofunctional Therapy. Our team collaborates with trained myofunctional therapists (OMT) to address bite imbalances or misalignments that can have a significant impact on overall health and sleep-disordered breathing. By teaching proper nasal breathing and encouraging proper airway development, the OMT plays a positive role in improving swallowing, proper tongue posture and position, and overall muscle function, as well as reducing the likelihood of relapse of previous and active orthodontic treatment.
