Occlusal disease is caused by the misalignment of the teeth of the upper and lower dental arches. This condition is also known as malocclusion, or a bad bite. When not corrected, occlusal disease can cause significant damage to your teeth, gums, supporting bone structure, jaw joints, and jaw muscles. This damage is often overlooked or dismissed as part of the natural wearing of teeth over time, but can in fact be a sign of a serious problem.
Common signs of occlusal disease include:
- Excessive wear of the tooth enamel
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Sensitivity to hot and cold
- Gum recession
- Bone deterioration and the subsequent loss of support for the teeth
- Muscle pain
- TMJ-related symptoms
