Tooth Grinding or Clenching
A healthy night’s sleep is highly restorative and beneficial to the entire body. However, for patients suffering from night time bruxism (grinding and clenching), sleep is often accompanied by the wearing down and breaking of their teeth. If left untreated, bruxism can result in debilitating jaw pain (Temporo-mandibular disorders or TDMs), as well as neck pain.
Although there is no known cure for grinding and clenching, our team can help alleviate most of your symptoms through the use of a night guard.
A night guard allows us to protect your teeth from further wear and tear, as well as fractures. Night guards also have the added benefit of minimizing stress on the jaw joint and muscles.
