Term Definition
Equilibration (aka Teeth Balancing)

Equilibration is the process of conservatively reshaping the enamel surfaces of teeth to achieve a more ideal bite in relationship to the jaws and muscles. The equilibrated mouth is less likely to experience joint problems, muscular pain, and teeth problems including soreness, sensitivity, cracking, chipping, and mobility. Equilibration also stabilizes the bite so that Dr. Kelly can restore segments of teeth in phases. Often patients have no idea how great their bite can feel until it is equilibrated.
