What is Tooth Grinding
Tooth grinding, also known as bruxism is a para-functional habit involving the clenching and gnashing of the teeth and jaws. This may be occurring while awake, or while asleep. Untreated bruxism may cause pain, tooth fracture, breaking of restorations and crowns, headaches and jaw problems. An occlusal splint works well for patients who are looking for mouth corrections. Our dentists are very experienced in that field. Call now!
How do we treat it?
We make special anti-grinding plates and splints from thick acrylic to help stop tooth grinding and the consequences of it. This splint eases pressure on both your teeth and your jaws.
