Protect Your Teeth Against Grinding (Bruxism)
Do you wake up with a stiff, sore jaw? Have you ever noticed that your teeth are flatter than they use to be? Do your teeth seem to be more sensitive to cold? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you maybe grinding or clenching your teeth at night. This dental condition is called bruxism. If left untreated, significant damage to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), jaw muscles, and teeth can occur.
A clear, thin removable custom device known as a nightguard is the treatment of choice. It will help relieve persistent jaw pain and also protect your existing teeth and dental restorations.
