“Occlusion” may not be a term you hear very often, but it’s something we think critically about every single day. Oral conditions that occur as a result of bad occlusion (when teeth do not fit together properly) will not be resolved without tailored treatment to restore dental function. Similarly, if teeth do not align correctly or function harmoniously, cosmetic and restorative treatments will not last.
Occlusion is the critical oral foundation needed to achieve accurate dental function and attractive smiles, and assure the health and longevity of both natural and restored teeth. Creating the most ideal occlusion is a crucial part of our care and the driving force behind all our treatments at Allure Dental. In order to be successful long-term, this comprehensive approach requires high levels of detail and skill, and a thorough understanding of the neuromuscular, functional, and aesthetic aspects of the smile.
Our dentists have received advanced clinical training in the health, function, and relationship between the teeth, jaw, joints, and muscles from the renowned Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies. This background equips us to diagnose and treat issues related to improper occlusion before pursuing more permanent cosmetic and restorative treatments. Because correct dental function is directly related to case success, we leverage advanced technology, including the T-Scan™ occlusion analysis system and i-CAT™ 3D cone beam imaging to improve diagnoses, procedures, and the long-term success of treatment.
