Open Late Dentistry and Orthodontics Dentist in Celina, TX


Helping Jaw Joints and Muscles Predictably Relax and Preventing Overdue Stress Teeth

Why Would I Need a Bite Equilibration / Bite Adjustment?


If you have ever fractured a tooth, it is rarely by happen-stance.

Typically, you tooth has been undergoing pressure from clenching and eventually breaking while eating food or after a night of stressful sleep full of clenching or grinding. 

If a particular tooth is high, the muscles of the face continue to tighten, forcing teeth to rub against one-another on the highest point on the highest spot of your teeth until your jaw joint is happy. 

If one of your teeth has a silver filling, it is typically one of the first to form a fracture, which then spreads, like a crack along a windshield. 

Eventually breaking the skinniest portion of the tooth or going below the gum line.

At Open Late Dentistry, we perform “occlusal analysis” on adult teeth all of the time as part of our New Patient Appointments, evaluating your teeth for a “heavy bite”, where one tooth may be taking the load of several teeth, leading to fracture and costly dental repairs down the road.

A Reading of a Dental Patient's Bite Showing Where It Is Highest in Red, Leading to More Stressed Placed on That Tooth. Chewing Forces Can Be Better Distributed During the Day With Straight Teeth and At Night With a Nightguard to "Level" Out the Bite.

Am I a Candidate for a Bite Equilibration / Bite Adjustment?

If you answer “YES!” to any of the following, book today to see if we can help:

  • Experiencing a pop in your jaw joint that has been present for years when you open?
  • Tense muscles that keep your teeth together throughout the day?
  • Noticing your teeth are appearing worn? 

Sometimes your tooth may require treatment already due to a cavity or crack, but sometimes this is only an indication of a more chronic, comprehensive problem. 

At Open Late Dentistry and Orthodontics, we believe part of a healthy smile is by having a healthy bite. 

An occlusal adjustment may be recommended to correct the alignment of the bite if loose, shifting, crowded, or missing teeth are affecting the remaining teeth.

Our Clear Orthodontic Trays are also a great way to fix teeth that have rotated to due a heavy bite. This makes each tooth “straighten up” and “pull its own weight” to contribute to chewing power when you go to eat or during stressful times of the day.

Digitally Planned Night Guards at Open Late Dentistry and Orthodontics help for the roughly 8 hours that Americans spend asleep.

However, during the day we recommend having a bite that will hold up to the stress of work and family like that you endure. 

An investment in a steady, even bite will ensure your front teeth are not being over worked when your back teeth are doing their part.

The result is an evenly distributed bite that eliminates irregular pressure on one side of the mouth.

Once your bite is adjusted, your teeth will meet properly. Occlusal adjustment causes minimal pain, and only a little discomfort.

The adjustment is made by using the latest in technology.

Dr. Rouse utilizes a 3D Scanning computer scan of the mouth, which records hundreds of bite registrations per minute, and show both you and us the tooth that is hitting highest, noting even the slightest irregularity.

That data allows the dentist to make only the adjustments that are absolutely necessary, which ensures a well aligned bite and minimal tooth wear. 

A dental polisher is then used to level the bite. Another scan is performed to ensure all teeth are coming together accurately.

A deprogrammer, a dental instrument, may be used to have you bite on and relax the jaw muscles before any adjustment is completed.


Fees for Bite Equilibration are dependent on how many teeth need adjustment and if you have dental insurance.

If you are a cash patient, we offer a discounted service with enrollment in our In-House Membership Plan.

If you have dental insurance  chances are we are contracted at your insurance's fee schedule rate.

23 hours a day. Only take them out to clean them and brush/floss your teeth.
