Occlusal or bite adjustments improve function or oral morphology through modification of tooth surfaces. Teeth grinding issues at night may be the cause of discomfort or malfunction for patients. The adjustment may be necessary to remove interferences from your teeth due to previous dental work, such as crowns or fillings. The procedure also treats misaligned teeth, crooked teeth, a poor bite, and other dental problems.

The most common justification for Dr. Nicosia to perform an occlusal adjustment is when a patient presents with a lack of stability and tooth mobility due to boneless as a result of periodontal disease. Making adjustments to your bite can do the following:

  • Promote greater tooth stability
  • Correct problems with biting and chewing
  • Relieve difficult breathing
  • Reduce the risk of gingivitis

The results of occlusal adjustment cannot be reversed so with 30 years of experience in periodontal dentistry, Dr. Nicosia will spend significant study time on tooth surfaces, bite contact, and dental impressions before the procedure is performed. Discomfort or pain are potential side effects of the bite adjustments, but they are usually mild.

I have been a patient of Dr Nicosia for 30 years and I am not going anywhere. He treat my family and friends in the best way that no doctor ever has.The best doctor who cares for his patients and who runs an office in a most professional way. He is a perfectionist in his profession and a friend to his patient. We love him and everyone in his office. Thank you Dr Nicosia for keeping our teeth and mouth in such top condition.

Dr. Nicosia is "go-to" for anything That is unexplainable...he not only explains the issue..of course he remedies the issue! I have been his patient now since 2013 between teeth cleaning with Cindy the hygienist and the assistants of Dr. Nicosia. I see them treating all of their patients with respect and most importantly appreciation.
