How does the dental equilibration procedure work?
To perform dental equilibration, your dentist will first examine your chewing system and take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will be used to make models of your mouth, which the dentist will use to analyze how your teeth touch and decide the best way to adjust them.
During your second visit, your dentist will use dental drills and burs to make slight modifications to your teeth. They may also use a bite marker to identify the areas where you bite hard and trim them down with precision.
As your chewing system adapts to the improved function, your dentist may need to see you again to check the contacts of your teeth and make more changes if needed.
You may feel some changes in the way your muscles and teeth feel at first. But once the treatment is finished, your teeth, muscles, and joints will be better aligned and work together more smoothly. This will allow for optimal jaw movement and comfort.
