How can an occlusal adjustment work?

In brief: Balance

Life is full of balance, and it's no different with your teeth.
They should meet harmoniously when you close your mouth, speak, and chew. In certain malocclusions, teeth can hit "incorrectly", causing excess stress on those specific teeth and your jaw. Adjusting the occlusion rebalances the bite and distributes the forces more evenly.
