Four Steps for Proper Diagnosis of Bite Problems:

  1. 1. History A detailed history of your symptoms and concerns is recorded.
  1. 2. Comprehensive Exam A thorough physical examination of your teeth, muscles and jaw joints is conducted. This includes dental x-rays, periodontal evaluation, and an oral cancer screening.
  1. 3. Diagnostic Photographs These images help us communicate with you and our dental ceramist, so you can see what we see, and we can be sure to be on the same page. We also use these photos to make informed decisions when developing our 3 Dimentional treatment plan.
  1. 4. 3D Analysis of your bite We use accurate models of your teeth, mounted on an special diagnostic instrument that allows us to see how your teeth come together when you bite, to assess the current condition of your occlusion, and to develop an appropriate plan for treatment.
Based on our findings, together with your input regarding any esthetic changes you may want to incorporate, we are able to develop the most predictable and conservative treatment that will meet your goals.
