Long-term management (Phase 2).

There are a variety of ways to correct your bite in a more permanent way. Four of the most common of these approaches are outlined below:

Coronoplasty/Equilibration

Coronoplasty is smoothing and reshaping the enamel of the teeth to correct your bite. It is a simple procedure that does not require anesthesia and can be used when the bite is only slightly misaligned.

Removable Overlay Partials

These are permanent orthotics that usually fit over the back teeth and are designed to maintain an aligned bite. Made like a partial denture with a metal framework and plastic teeth.

Reconstruction

This approach involves making the teeth higher by using crowns. This permanently realigns the bite and provides structural support for the jaw.

Orthodontics (Braces)

When the teeth are healthy they may be moved to the optimal position using braces. This way no healthy tooth structure needs to be removed.
