Occlusion is the study and science of the way we bite, and the way our teeth, muscles, and joints interact with each other.
At times the way we bite can cause problems leading to broken teeth and fillings. In certain instances, we can also get headaches and migraines related to the way we bite.
Under these circumstances, we may need to prescribe a relaxation or repositioning splint, or on occasions to deprogram the position of the misaligned arch. These splints then relieve stress on your teeth, muscles and jaw, and help reduce further headaches and tooth wear.
