You have invested a lot in keeping your smile healthy and getting it in good shape. Now how are you protecting that investment? Many of our patients grind their teeth and don’t even realize it! The problem is, grinding your teeth can cause a wide variety of problems from wearing down or breaking your teeth (and your restorations), to jaw disorders and chronic headaches. If we see signs of bruxism or grinding, we can fit you with a custom-made bruxism guard, night guard or occlusal splint to reduce the damage to your teeth from grinding or clenching and relieve your TMJ pain. The more you wear your appliance, the better you feel and the more you protect your teeth!
