Bite Turbo

bite turbo

Bite Turbos are small composite platforms placed on the inside of the upper front teeth, or on the biting surfaces of the back molars, to prevent full closure of the teeth. When upper and lower braces are placed at the same time, in many instances, the top teeth bite down and contact the lower braces. This will cause discomfort to the patient, and will prevent the lower teeth from aligning properly. To avoid these unfavorable issues, Bite Turbos are placed on the back of the upper front teeth, or on the biting surfaces of the back molars, to act as ramps or speed bumps, to prevent the patient from biting all the way down. These Bite Turbos are only temporary, and are eventually easily removed by Dr. Nick.
