Bruxism

Do you wake up in the morning with a sore jaw?  Are your teeth sensitive to cold?  Do you notice your teeth are wearing down or getting shorter?  You could be grinding or clenching your teeth when you are sleeping, which is a medical condition called Bruxism.  Studies show that grinding your teeth at night can actually be wearing down the teeth at a rate of 80 times the normal wear per day. 

We can help you protect your teeth and your restorations by making a soft, flexible, custom nightguard for you to wear at night.  In addition to protecting your natural teeth and crowns or fillings, the nightguard may also relieve headaches and TMJ pain.  The nightguard is usually worn on the lower teeth and is removable.  The appointment is quick and easy; we take an impression of your lower teeth and you come back the next day to pick it up!
