Tooth Repair: Q&AAsk a Question
Is There a Way to Pull/build Molars "Back Up" After Mild Impacting from Grinding?
After a botched occlussal adjustment that I did not need (had an perfect bite before), my bite started putting extreme pressure on my back molar teeth when I ate and slept (suddenly became a horizontal "bite up and down" grinder) , and the constant pressure seems to have caused my teeth to sink up into the gums (or something) because none of my back teeth, left or right, now touch, and my front teeth now collide, which has never once happened before. What can be done about missing molar height?
Can I build up a molar?
