Have you noticed or has your sleep partner complained that you are grinding your teeth?Maybe you are not aware that you are grinding your teeth. Many people don’t know that they are slowly wearing away their teeth while they are sleeping! As part of our comprehensive dental examination (hyperlink to family dentistrypage), our clients are routinely checked for the signs of bruxism.
Tooth grinding can cause significant damage to your teeth over time, and may cause TMJ (joint) pain, even changing the way your bite functions forever!
A bruxism appliance, commonly called a “night guard” is recommended for individuals who grind or clench their teeth.
These appliances are custom made.
