Do You Grind Your Teeth?

Keep waking up with a sore jaw, a dull headache or tooth pain? These may be signs that you have a condition known as bruxism

Bruxism, or teeth grinding, affects upwards of 8% of adultsaccording to the American Dental Association. If you’re one of them, it is time to get the treatment you need, or you may be subjecting yourself to long-term damage.

While there’s an array of ways to alleviate the effects of bruxismone of the most popular and easiest methods is with a night guard for teeth grinding. 

night guard for teeth is essentially a mouth guard that’s worn only while you sleep at night. Its main function is to prevent the surfaces of your teeth from grinding together, causing chipped and cracked teeth, as well as strain on your jaw muscles.

What’s the process to get a night guard for teeth grinding? It’s very simple. All you need to do is pay a visit to our dentist. We’ll take a mold of your teeth to create a custom, perfectly fit, and easy-to-wear night guard for just you.
