The Right Bite for a Great Smile

dental occlusionWhen a dentist talks about your “bite,” he’s referring to your occlusion – how your top and bottom teeth fit together. Optimal occlusion occurs when opposing teeth come together in their ideal arrangement.

A great smile is one where each element – teeth, gums, joints, and muscles – functions harmoniously with the others. In the 25 years since I opened Fitzgerald Dental Center, I’ve never wavered in my dedication to give patients smiles that look great and feel great. [Read more...]
