When Is Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy Recommended?

People who experience problems with chronic jaw pain, facial soreness, and even recurring migraines can have their troubles traced back to an issue with their bite function. At our Katy, TX dental practice, we are ready to work with you if you struggle with TMJ disorder because of a flaw in the alignment of your bite. We use advanced pressure mapping technology to understand how you are applying pressure, and to see if imbalances occur when you close and release your bite. With this information, we can begin disclusion time reduction therapy to help you reduce ongoing discomfort.

Imbalances In Your Bite Can Create Real Trouble For You

People develop problems in their bite for different reasons. Sometimes, it is hard for a person to comfortably bite and chew because of their dental alignment. In other cases, existing problems with certain teeth can make it hard to put pressure on them. Unfortunately, people may not recognize that they are moving their jaw in an awkward or uncomfortable way, and they can continue to create problems for themselves.

What To Expect When You Arrange Disclusion Time Reduction Therapy

When we plan disclusion time reduction, the goal is to make changes to your bite that help you naturally reduce stress in the joints and muscles. The first step will be to take an advanced diagnostic of your bite motion, as this can tell us where imbalances are occurring, and help us better understand your movement. That information gives us a clear indication of how your bite might be affecting your quality of life, and it can tell us how we might be able to provide relief for you through corrective therapy.

We Can Help Restore Teeth Affected By Your Flawed Bite

It may be necessary to restore teeth that are in poor shape in order to truly correct your bite motion. If this is the case, we can discuss using modern dental crowns to cover teeth you are uncomfortable putting pressure on during routine biting and chewing. You can quickly adapt to a better bite without discomfort, and you can be glad to see that your restorations do not cause problems for your appearance!
