Occlusal disease is a generic term (like periodontal disease) that covers a number of pathological dental conditions associated with the bite, jaw muscles and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Some causes of occlusal disease include:

  • An unbalanced bite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Involuntary teeth grinding

Genetics play a large part in occlusal problems. Occlusal disease is a term used to describe the pathological bite or occlusion that destroys a patient’s dentition and causes multiple symptoms, such as:

  • Jaw pain, clicking, locking
  • Head and neck muscle pain, tension headaches
  • Severe wear or chipping of natural teeth
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Grooves on exposed root surfaces
