If you are one of the many people who have the tendency to grind or clench their teeth - especially at night, you are putting your teeth at risk for erosion and damage. Bruxism can cause tooth problems and damage, and if it is left untreated, it can lead to migraine headaches, shoulder pain, and back and neck pains.
Grinding and clenching normally happen when the person is asleep and is typically a result of anxiety, stress, or a sleeping disorder called sleep apnea. As of today, there is still no cure found to treat bruxism, but there are several ways to reduce it. Our dental experts recommend the use of a night guard. A night guard is a dental solution intended to help prevent teeth from grinding together. Night guards are an effective way to reduce bruxism and treating sleep apnea.
Our practice helps you with custom night guards made of high-quality material. These are made just for you by taking an impression of your teeth to ensure a comfortable fit.
