Treatment of occlusion in Supradent Warsaw
Occlusion is a common phenomenon in our clinic. It consists in the contact of the upper and lower teeth. Apparently, this is not a threat, as long as we only deal with touching the upper and lower teeth, but it can also lead to occlusive disease. Then the occlusion phenomenon becomes a serious problem of dental nature. Patients who ignore them, may suffer from pain, and in extreme cases, the lack of treatment will lead to tooth loss.
Symptoms of dental occlusion
The pathological contact between the upper and lower teeth is between abnormal contacts between them, which is a simple way to appear for a patient with occlusive disease. It can be recognized after many characteristic symptoms:
problems with mouth opening – burning and aching in the jaw,
crushing teeth, gnashing teeth – at night and in the day,
loud crackle joints, migraine headaches,
fatigue of the neck muscles and the whole face,
hypersensitivity and toothache, the recession of the gums.
You can not ignore these symptoms or downplay them. It is best to seek help from our qualified specialists who will diagnose whether a patient can talk about occlusion disease. Most often, however, patients are reported to the dentist when the occlusion of the teeth is already advanced.
An occlusion in dentistry causes excessive work done by jaw muscles. They tighten, causing damage not only to the teeth but also to the temporo-mandibular joint. Teeth can be shifted, puffed up, until eventually the occlusion disappears without treatment. Sometimes, the phenomenon can be accompanied by severe inflammation and fever.
