27 Services ( View All )

Overview

A bite analysis is performed to help determine if you are having a bad bite or if you have an occlusion disorder. When your teeth don't fit together properly, it can be damaging to your mouth and gums and also lead to pain in your jawbone. To administer a bite analysis, Dieter Burr, D.M.D. employs state-of-the-art technology to test the strength of your teeth and determine how much force is exerted by each individual tooth. The analysis could identify whether you have a crossbite, overbite, or underbite. Additionally, we evaluate your muscles, jaw, and teeth together to look for any underlying problems that could be caused by a bad bite. If not treated properly, a bad bite can cause future problems that may be painful or debilitating, so it is necessary to receive a diagnosis after you notice an uncomfortable or painful bite. Call Advanced Dental Care in Cocoa, FL to schedule your bite analysis today. 

Symptoms

There are numerous reasons to get a bite analysis and determine if a disorder exists. Some of the most frequent symptoms include broken, chipped, cracked, or crooked teeth, pain when you chew, persistent headaches or jaw aches, inflamed or stiff jawbone, and a receding gumline. In some cases, a misaligned bite can lead to teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, which can cause further jaw pain and a loss of enamel.

What to Expect

A bite analysis is commonly composed of digital x-rays, a 3D scan, a bite study, and a physical exam by Dr. Burr. Once any problems with your bite are identified, there are a few different treatment options depending on the seriousness of your specific situation. In more mild cases, a night guard is usually recommended, although some serious cases may require surgical treatment.

Follow-Up

It is important that in the event you have another disorder or issues with your bite that you continue to go to routine dental exams so that Dr. Burr can assess any changes, even after treatment. It's also advisable to continue to maintain a suitable at-home oral hygiene routine, which includes regular brushing, flossing, and mouthwash.
