Overview

If your teeth do not fit together properly, it may be damaging to your gums and teeth, and can also result in discomfort in your jaw. An analysis of your bite is done to determine if you have a poor bite or a dental malocclusion. To complete a bite evaluation, Dr. Marianna Farber utilizes innovative technologies at her practice in New York, NY to check the strength of your bite and also ascertain how much pressure is exerted by each individual tooth. A bite analysis could identify when you have an underbite, overbite, or crossbite.
