What is an Occlusally-Aware Dentist?

An occlusally aware dentist is one who has a good understanding of how your occlusion (your bite and general geometry of your teeth) works and who applies that understanding to your treatment.

These dentists have usually taken extensive training in the subject of occlusion and are skilled at recognizing the signs and symptoms of occlusal disease. Not everyone suffers from occlusal disease, but a good many do and those who don't can still benefit from the services of a dentist who knows how to preserve their healthy occlusion. Having a dentist who can identify and treat problems caused by occlusal disease can save you years of repeating tooth failures, degenerating tooth health or chronic pains.

When restorations are required, an occlusally-aware dentist has the understanding to create a comfortable, long-lasting and natural arrangement of your teeth.

A sound understanding of occlusion is necessary before truly delivering quality dentistry. Consequently, the occlusally-aware dentists are often recognized as being the top dentists in their fields.

One of the best tutorials I've seen for explaining occlusal disease to patients. The reasons for occlusal therapy are explained with excellent animations and anatomic accuracy.
