Teeth clenching or grinding is also known as bruxism. In many cases, this is a temporary condition, and children with bruxism often grow out of the problem on their own. But if the problem is not showing any signs of going away or if you grind your teeth in response to stress, you should call our office and schedule an appointment.
Our dentist can create a custom night guard designed specifically to fit your smile. A night guard can protect your teeth and reduce any discomfort caused by bruxism. You may need to see our dentist for a night guard if you are experiencing any of these symptoms:
If you think you may be grinding your teeth at night, your spouse or partner has noticed you grinding your teeth, or you find yourself clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth in moments of stress, we may be able to help. Contact our office for your appointment to learn more about night guards and see if a night guard could help keep your smile safe.
