Occlusal Therapy in West Byfleet
Maintaining oral health goes beyond treating cavities or gum disease. The way your teeth meet when you bite, known as your occlusion, plays a significant role in your overall dental health. Coniston Dental Practice in West Byfleet, Surrey, offers comprehensive occlusal therapy to restore harmony to your bite and alleviate various dental issues.
What is Occlusal Therapy?
Occlusal therapy, also referred to as occlusal adjustment or bite equilibration, is a dental procedure aimed at correcting irregularities in how your upper and lower teeth come together when biting or chewing. This therapy focuses on achieving optimal occlusal balance, which ensures that your teeth, muscles, and jaw joints work harmoniously.
The Importance of Occlusal Balance
A well-balanced occlusion prevents excessive forces on specific teeth, reduces the risk of dental fractures, and minimises muscle strain. When your bite is misaligned, it can lead to a range of problems, including headaches, jaw pain, and even worn-down teeth. Occlusal therapy addresses these issues by identifying and rectifying imbalances.
Signs You Might Need Occlusal Therapy
If you experience symptoms such as:
- Toothache and premature tooth wear
- Pain, clicking or locking of the jaw joint
- Tenderness of the facial muscles which sometimes extends to the neck or shoulders
- Difficulty in chewing
- Noticing changes in how your teeth meet
Your occlusion might be the culprit.
The Occlusal Therapy Process
The first step in occlusal therapy involves a comprehensive examination of your bite. Using advanced technology, our dental experts at Coniston Dental Practice will assess the alignment of your teeth and the relationship between your upper and lower jaws. Based on the findings, a personalised treatment plan will be created.
Customised Treatment Plans
No two patients are alike, and neither are their occlusal issues. That’s why occlusal therapy at Coniston Dental Practice is tailored to your unique needs. Your treatment plan may include adjusting the surfaces of specific teeth, reshaping dental restorations, or even orthodontic treatment to achieve the ideal bite.
Benefits of Occlusal Therapy
Occlusal therapy offers a range of benefits, including relief from jaw pain, headaches, and muscle tension. By restoring proper occlusion, you can also prevent further dental problems like fractures and premature wear. Additionally, achieving a harmonious bite contributes to better overall oral health.

What Our Patients Say
Dr Nell is a fantastic dentist. Jolly, reassuring, and extremely knowledgeable. I am sad to be leaving and moving out of the area, as he and his team are outstanding.
Fantastic! Extremely welcoming and very friendly, great advice, very professional, sensible pricing. I’m a new customer and like many perhaps anxious moving to a new practice, but I felt completely at ease and comfortable throughout, it’s refreshing to have ‘old school’ service and logical advice. I can highly recommend these ladies and gents! 😁
Honestly after 10 years of never going to dentist due to fear, im so happy i came here after my sisters recommendation. Helena is amazing, she made me feel at ease, was very patient with me. Finally i can go to dentist without a complete meltdown.Thank you so much for helping me.

Joined this new local dental practice on 10/5/23 and had my 6 monthly checkup with dentist, having previously filled out online health questionnaire & having had my dental history sent from previous practice. It was the most thorough checkup ever. Everyone was very caring & very professional. Very informative Dentist, charming dental nurse and friendly reception staff. Booked hygienist for the following week. Very impressed with my first visit. Its very local to me which is a bonus. Would definitely recommend the practice.Thank you Coniston.
Wonderfull dentist and hygenist services here.. used to come as a kid and after a recent visit with my mother with disability issues I have chosen to get back on their books.. Everyone from front of house through to the doctors has been so pleasant to deal with making what could possibly be something quite stressful nice and simple
