Occlusal/Bite Adjustment

Dr. Schaefer,
You took away the aching pain in my teeth almost immediately after the bite adjustment.  Simply the best care I could ask for.  My jaw hasnt stopped aching for years.  Wow, just fantastic work!  Life is better without aching teeth.
I look forward to see what else you can find to improve my teeth on my next visit.  

Thank you very much!!
Charlie H.


  • There are times when some people may wake up with sore muscles or teeth and/or may feel that their bite is lopsided or “shifting.”  These can be signs that an occlusal or “bite” adjustment is needed. 
  • When regular orthodontic treatment is not suitable to fix the problem, the adjustments are made by simply grinding lightly on the interfering teeth with a fine filing stone. This way, all the teeth can come together in a more even and functional relation, and share an equal load. This will often relieve excess pressure on selected teeth and eliminate pain.
