Occasional teeth grinding is usually harmless, but frequent bruxism (tooth grinding) can cause damage to the teeth and jaw pain. Many people are unaware that they grind their teeth, and often a sleep partner is the first to notice. Your dentist can also tell you if you have a teeth-grinding problem. If untreated, bruxism can cause tooth fractures or tooth loss and may also cause your teeth to wear down all the way. This can create a need for expensive dental work to repair the damage. Night guard scan help protect your teeth at night, but if stress is causing the teeth grinding, you can look into ways to reduce or help manage the stress in your life.
We will evaluate your teeth and if you grind teeth you should consider a night guard. Night guards, which should be custom fitted, will be placed between your upper and lower teeth when you are in sleep. We need to make impressions of your teeth to be able to fabricate a custom made night guard. Night guards can be cleaned with simple water.
