My Problem

 

 


Frequently Asked Questions

Oftentimes, patients are referred for a problem, but don’t really know why. Below is a brief list of common problems. Bite problems can result from dental problems and/or skeletal problems. Dr. Renick will evaluate the bite at your consult appointment to make the diagnosis and help you understand what needs to be done to correct it. A “malocclusion” simply means the bite is not correct. Many people have many questions and this will be an evergrowing page. If you don’t see your question or answer below, drop us a line at FAQs@renickortho.com and we’ll add it to the list! Educating our patients about their issues is one of our main goals.

What is Traumatic Occlusion?

Traumatic Occlusion occurs when the teeth hit abnormally. A patient can chip or wear teeth when this occurs. This can even cause problems in the gum tissue. Crossbites are examples of traumatic occlusions. Occlusion means bite.
