As we age, most people believe that tooth wear and abrasion is normal. Often, however, excessive tooth wear can be linked to a “bad bite” or malocclusion (the manner in which your teeth come together). By utilizing the technology and concepts of Neuromuscular dentistry, Dr. Popp can analyze your current bite to determine if your muscles, joints and teeth are working together. If there is a problem with your bite, Dr. Popp can correct the problem, often relieving many other symptoms associated with malocclusion. A proper bite is important in minimizing tooth wear and insuring that any dental restorations you may have will last.
