Custom Mouthguards for Teeth Grinding
If you suffer from teeth grinding, a custom mouthguard can help you prevent major, unintended dental damages. Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a very common dental concern that many of our patients have. Often, patients do not even realize that they grind their teeth until it results in dental damages like worn-down enamel. Our doctors look for signs and symptoms of teeth grinding during your preventative care appointments. If we suspect you have been grinding your teeth, we will suggest incorporating a custom mouthguard into your treatment plan to be worn at night. The custom mouthguard will ensure that even if you grind your teeth together while you sleep, no dental damages will occur.
Custom Mouthguards for TMJ Disorders
Custom mouthguards may also be incorporated into TMJ treatment plans. Patients with TMJ disorders experience chronic jaw pain, as well as a variety of other debilitating symptoms. Some patients may benefit from oral appliance therapy, which utilizes a custom mouthguard to prevent strain on your jaw joints and facial muscles. If you suffer from TMJ, our doctors will recommend a treatment plan designed specifically around your needs and treat your jaw pain at the source.
