Have you noticed that your teeth are chipping away? Do you often get headaches? Do you feel that your facial muscles feel sore in the morning? Were you told that you grind your teeth at night? If you have any of these, you might be suffering from a condition known as Bruxism.
Bruxism is your body's reaction to stress and tension. Other factors such as a misaligned bite, sleep disorders and other health and lifestyle issues contribute to the problem. Constant grinding and clenching leads to destruction of tooth structure or wear, causes sensitivity, gum recession, joint dysfunction as well as has a direct effect on overall health. After thorough evaluation we determine if the Night Guard is a solution for you. For many patients wearing a night splint relieves the symptoms. In more complicated cases other alternatives will be discussed.
