An occlusion exam is a collection of data allowing the diagnosis of jaw movement disorders. This is relevant for people suffering from one or more of the following signs and symptoms: headaches, neck pain, muscle pain in cheeks and temples, pain in the jaw joint, worn teeth, etc. When we know the state of the occlusion, we can determine whether a patient can be relieved of his pain by wearing a balanced bite splint and / or proceeding to a teeth balance.
Sometimes, after an occlusion exam and in cases of stable, non-symptomatic temporomandibular joints, the patient that does not wish to wear a bite splint at night can balance his teeth. The balancing consists of micro-grinding of the teeth to allow a stable occlusion that is functional and without interference.
Because of the events of the last few days, Quebec dentists have mobilized to postpone non-urgent appointments for the next two weeks to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. We wish to inform you that the Candiac Dental Health Centre is temporarily CLOSED as of today, Monday, March 16, until May 1st. We will contact you by phone to change the date of your appointments.
For a real emergency requiring immediate care (acute pain, swelling or trauma), please contact us at 450 907-3335.
We thank you for your understanding at this critical time when we must all work together to prevent the spread of this virus and protect the most vulnerable people.
