The first step in assuring a dental restoration will last long-term is creating a healthy and functional foundation. If bad occlusion is thought to be present, we can verify this with the T-Scan™, a digital analysis device that provides 3D images of the biting force and timing of each tooth. By adjusting the points of bad contact between the teeth, a proper occlusion can be reached without the need for more complex intervention. This treatment is minimally invasive, though we do offer sedation for dental anxiety when necessary. If teeth have bad occlusion due to misalignment, Invisalign® may be used to create harmony and balance between the teeth. Invisalign is effective at correcting issues that can lead to teeth grinding, which can also affect the long-term security of a dental restoration. If you have a broken dental restoration, it is best to make an appointment as soon as possible!
