What is bite evaluation?

A bite evaluation is used to determine whether your teeth properly fit together to provide you with optimal oral health and function. Before your braces are removed by an orthodontist, our experienced dentists can perform a bite evaluation. This evaluation will tell us whether or not your bite needs any additional orthodontic adjustment before the braces should be removed.

Do I need a bite evaluation?

If you are currently undergoing orthodontic treatment (wearing braces) or if you suspect that your bite is “off” or that your teeth do not properly fit together, a bite evaluation can help us determine the best course of treatment for your smile. Having a correct bite is important because it prevents unnecessary wear on the teeth and can also prevent migraines, jaw problems, and other issues. Your teeth may not fit together properly if you experience tooth pain, especially when biting or chewing, or if you notice uneven wear on your teeth.
