Dental Occlusion

Benevita's treatments aim to care for patients with muscle pain in the face, neck, and back, joint pain and noise, and dental wear.

Many of those common symptoms are associated with malocclusion.





Improving dental occlusion can have a positive impact on people's lives by allowing them to eat and speak more easily, reducing discomfort, and improving their overall quality of life.

Dental Occlusion


Dental occlusion refers to the alignment and contact between the teeth of the upper and lower jaws when they approach each other, such as during biting or chewing.


Occlusal problems can arise from issues such as tooth misalignment (malocclusion), missing teeth, jaw misalignment (such as temporomandibular joint disorders), or abnormal tooth wear.


Dental occlusion treatments aim to correct these issues and restore proper alignment and function of the teeth and jaws.


Benevita offers a wide range of treatments aimed at solving dental occlusion problems, preventing, improving, and restoring dental, mandibular, and joint alterations, and generating harmony between the structures that make up the temporomandibular complex.

  1. Orthodontic Treatment: Orthodontic treatment, commonly with braces or clear aligners, is often used to correct malocclusion, which is a misalignment of the teeth. Orthodontic appliances gradually move the teeth into proper alignment, improving both the appearance and function of the bite.

  2. Dental Restorations: Dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or implants may be used to restore missing teeth and fill gaps in the dental arches. They help maintain the proper alignment of the remaining teeth, prevent shifting, and improve occlusal function.

  3. Dental Bonding: Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin material to the teeth to correct minor imperfections in shape, size, or alignment. Bonding can help improve the occlusion by reshaping the teeth and restoring proper bite alignment.

  4. Tooth Reshaping (Odontoplasty): Tooth reshaping, also known as odontoplasty or enameloplasty, involves removing small amounts of tooth enamel to adjust the shape, size, or surface of the teeth. This procedure can help correct minor occlusal irregularities and improve the overall balance and function of the bite.

  5. Night Guards or Occlusal Splints: Night guards or occlusal splints are custom-made oral appliances worn over the teeth during sleep to alleviate symptoms of teeth grinding (bruxism) or temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD). These appliances help protect the teeth from excessive wear and relieve pressure on the jaw joints, muscles, and ligaments.

  6. Orthognathic Surgery: In cases of severe malocclusion or skeletal jaw discrepancies, orthognathic surgery may be recommended. Orthognathic surgery involves repositioning the jaws to achieve proper alignment and occlusion. It is often performed in conjunction with orthodontic treatment to optimize results.

  7. Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Therapy: TMJ therapy focuses on managing temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), which can cause jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds, and difficulty chewing. Treatment may include medication, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, or, in severe cases, surgery.

  8. Occlusal Adjustment: Occlusal adjustment involves reshaping the chewing surfaces of the teeth to improve the alignment and function of the bite. Small amounts of tooth structure may be removed using dental instruments or laser technology.



The specific treatment approach for dental occlusion problems depends on the underlying cause, severity of the condition, and individual patient factors.
