Stress is a fact of life, and everyone deals with it differently. If you deal with it by subconsciously clenching or grinding your teeth or by grinding your teeth at night, you could be putting your smile at risk for future problems. Bruxism can result in damaged teeth, a misaligned smile, morning headaches, and even jaw, neck and shoulder pain, and fatigue. In some cases, especially with children, this problem may go away on its own. If it does not, talk with our dentist and team.
We can see you for an examination of your bite. Using digital imaging, we can create a custom night guard designed specifically to fit your smile. This night guard will act as a cushion between your upper and lower teeth, preventing dental damage and preventing discomfort. Once we have created your night guard, we can work with you on creating a treatment plan to correct the damage done by bruxism.
