Bite Adjustments and Equilibration

Dental misalignment is fairly common and can be a result of previous orthodontic work, genetic issues or trauma. When your teeth are misaligned, you may experience frequent headaches, jaw tension and discomfort when participating in everyday routines. Luckily, our bite adjustment procedure helps create harmony in less than an hour. This fairly simple procedure allows you to function more naturally and alleviates pain related to TMJ.

What are bite adjustments and Equilibration?

We feature bite adjustments as a way to palliatively treat TMJ conditions without the need for surgery. During this quick procedure, Dr. Steven Davidowitz utilizes the state of the art Itero Element scanner to map the patients bite and bite forces. Dr. Steven Davidowitz then gently re-contours and polishes the teeth. This procedure allows the joints to remain comfortably adjusted while we work to close the teeth down so they all make even contact, essentially reprogramming your muscle memory.

We've found once the bite and oral structures have been equilibrated, everything is in harmony and your muscles become less fatigued and stressed, alleviating pain. This simple process is life changing for patients when performed by a trusted dentist.

At Luxury Dentistry NYC we utilize bite adjustments to re-contour and define your bite, providing each patient with a customized and natural feel. Just a single area of misalignment in oral structure can cause tooth sensitivity, jaw pain or speech issues.
