Clenching and grinding of teeth (bruxism) is a serious condition/habit. Most patients don’t even know they’re doing it while they sleep. But grinding is very harmful to your teeth – it causes wearing of your teeth and can damage your TMJ – temporomandibular joint. You can even fracture a tooth by clenching or grinding. Nightguards are a great solution. We custom make and fit a nightguard to your bite – alleviating the impact of grinding and clenching and the pain associated with this habit. Used daily, a nightguard can be an effective and comfortable solution to an unavoidable problem!
