Coronoplasty/Equilibration

Dr. Hoa Nguyen - Coronoplasty/Equilibration

In instances where a minor irregularity in the occlusion (bite) is caused by the interference of a slightly protruding or poorly shaped tooth or teeth, some enamel from the affected area(s) can be reshaped in order to achieve optimal occlusion. It is important to note that this procedure is only applicable to cases that require very minor adjustments.

Whenever the enamel is reshaped, the K7 Evaluation System may be used to measure the resulting occlusal relationship.
