Grinding Facts

Happy Toothsday!

Do you wake in the morning with jaw pain or feeling like you have an all-day headache?  Do you find yourself stressed out and clenching your teeth during the day?  Chronic teeth grinding and/or clenching (aka Bruxism) can not only make your jaw hurt, it can cause damage to your teeth and or tooth loss.  A simple dental guard or splint may alleviate pain and help prevent harm to your teeth and gums.  An impression is taken in the office and a few days later, we deliver your custom guard/splint and make any adjustments to ensure its proper fit and comfort.  Call the office today to ask any questions about grinding, clenching, or guards and splints.
