How can an existing bite affect Periodontal Disease?


Preston Dental Saskatoon Dental Clinic Services

Bite problems on periodontally affected teeth can lead to accelerated periodontal disease and loosening of the teeth. If signs of a bite problem are present, the following may be considered to balance your bite and relieve excess pressure on periodontally involved teeth:

  • Bite therapies including deprogramming and equilibration
  • Orthodontic repositioning of the teeth
  • Replacement of worn or damaged teeth
  • Replacement of worn or damaged fillings
  • Replacement of missing teeth
  • Use of a custom-fitted bite guard to protect from grinding or clenching forces
