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
