It is important for your oral health to have your teeth properly align when you bite. If not aligned, pressure on the teeth can lead to fractures in the enamel, to muscle pain & spasm and to grinding.
Equilibration is the process of adjusting your bite by reshaping the surfaces of your teeth. The first step involves locating the stable position of the jaw joints. A bite registration is then taken to record this position for reference. Secondly, impressions of the teeth are made so that the dentist may use the casts to make adjustments and determine the optimal amount positioning of the teeth to achieve a balanced bite. Finally, using the casts as a guide, adjustments are made to the teeth.
