New patients with malocclusion can now receive effective occlusal adjustment, with or without a referral, from Dr. Kiya Green. Dr. Green is an experienced periodontist in Matthews, NC, who is raising awareness of occlusal adjustment treatment benefits. When malocclusion is left untreated, it can damage the teeth and lead to bite issues and other negative oral health repercussions.

Malocclusion occurs when the jaw does not close properly and the teeth do not fit together in a closed position as they should. Some signs of malocclusion include fractured teeth, cracks in the teeth, worn enamel that has been ground down in certain areas and sometimes even localized deep pockets. Depending on the severity of the condition, patients may also experience sleep apnea and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) related pain or clicking and popping noises with jaw movement. These types of problems can negatively affect a patient’s oral and overall health. Patients who have these problems are invited to find out if occlusal adjustment will correct the problem and fix the bite. Dr. Green is a respected periodontist in Matthews, NC, who is experienced in performing occlusal adjustments.

Before taking steps to correct the bite, Dr. Green first has the patient bite down on a thin piece of mylar paper. The paper is designed to transfer color only to areas of the teeth where contact occurs. Once Dr. Green can see where the teeth are touching properly and where they are not, she can use special tools to smooth areas where too much contact is occurring. Once this process is complete, the teeth will meet together properly and evenly. People who have frequent headaches, jaw pain and neck aches due to malocclusion often experience relief from their symptoms in the days and weeks following treatment by an experienced periodontist.

Dr. Green is a respected periodontist in Matthews, NC, who has successfully performed many occlusal adjustment procedures. She invites patients with signs of malocclusion to visit her practice for a custom consultation and treatment. Appointments may be reserved by calling Matthews Periodontics at 704-847-5657.
