Occlusion – What Is It and How Does it Effect you?

Dr. Merrill is excited to offer his patients a new video series where he will explain in an easily understandable way some common dentistry terms and conditions.

What is Occlusion?

Occlusion, put simply, is the way your teeth come together and cause contact between your upper and lower teeth.

When the teeth are contacting in the correct way, it allows you to eat and talk comfortably. A malocclusion or bad bite occurs when there is a misalignment in the way the upper and lower jaws and teeth are coming together and can result in a number of problems.

Listen to Dr. Merrill’s clear explanation in his new video.
