Bruxism is the excessive clenching and grinding of your teeth. Millions of Americans suffer from nighttime bruxism and experience the consequences when it goes untreated. Your jaw muscles have the ability to exert a huge amount of force and can fracture teeth, create muscle soreness, and cause headaches.
Additionally, long-term bruxism can create problems with your jaw and degeneration of your jaw joint over time. Some of the most common symptoms of bruxism include:
A nightguard provides a barrier between your upper and lower teeth, protecting them from damaging each other with back and forth grinding motions or from clenching while you sleep. Each of our nightguards is a custom appliance that fits your teeth perfectly.
If you or your children play sports, custom mouth guards provide protection during sports such as baseball, football, hockey, lacrosse, wrestling, and martial arts. The mouth guards that we create fit better than mouth guards you can find in sporting goods stores, and they stay in your mouth, where they belong. We take impressions and create your mouth guard using detailed models of your teeth. That way, they don’t slip out when you need them most.
