You may be grinding or clenching your teeth at work, driving, lifting heavy objects. Grinding of the teeth is a medical conditon called bruxism. Over time, bruxism will result in the wearing down of natural tooth enamel. Reduce the risk of wear and tear of your existing healthy teeth by using a nightguard (or occlusal guard). A clear, thin removable device, a dayguard is custom made to fit over your upper or lower teeth during the day. In addition to relieving head, neck, jaw joint (TMJ) and shoulder pain, it will protect your existing teeth and your major dental restorations.
Please call us for the consultation appointment.
