About Occlusal Adjustments
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.
Patrick V. Nicosia D.D.S., M.S., Inc. Reviews
Dr Nicosia was my dentist over 20 years ago before I moved to another city. He is the best and very knowledgeable in his field. I still have my teeth so that is definitely due to his expertise in gum surgery and teeth care. My husband recently started having dental issues and needed to get expert care so of course we made the trip to Houston to see the expert. We are both extremely happy with the dental experience Dr Nicosia and his staff provide for our family.
Dr. Nicosia and Cindy are simply the best at what they do. They care deeply about the patient's well being. I have been treated for dental care with Dr. Nicosia and Cindy over a decade now and wouldn't go anywhere else.

I and two other family members have used Dr. Nicosia over the past 10 years for dental implants. He’s absolutely the best! He is passionate about his work, uses the latest technology and is honest, kind and professional. His staff is equally excellent. I wouldn’t go to anyone else and I always recommend him to anyone needing dental work.
