An occlusal is typically prescribed for the function and protection of your bite and jaw joints. It is a specialized treatment that must be customized per individual and requires at least 3 appointments. During your first appointment, we will request at least 1 hour of time. The first visit is vital for treatment recommendations and is when your dental records will be taken. These records can include; x-rays, impressions of your teeth, photographs, and other digital imaging. On your second appointment, we will request at least a 20-30 minute visit which will be approximately 3 weeks after the first visit. During this visit you will be fitted with your oral appliance and Dr. Chad will thoroughly review your therapy.
