Teeth Grinding Treatment in Waterdown
Waterdown Village Dentistry strives to provide you and your family with gentle, relaxing dental care.
Has your teeth grinding ever woken up a loved on at night? Bruxism is a habit of grinding or clenching the teeth. Clenching means you tightly hold your top and bottom teeth together. Grinding is when you slide your teeth back and forth over each other.
People who suffer from bruxism may have one or more of the following symptoms:
- headache or earache
- sore jaw
- jaw clicking
- frequent toothaches
- sensitive teeth
- facial pain
- worn or cracked teeth or fillings
- tongue indentations, insomnia.
Our dentists can create an appliance to wear at night, called a nightguard, to help protect your teeth from the strains of grinding. These nightguards are typically made of plastic or acrylic and can be hard or soft. They are custom fitted mouth guards that can be worn on the upper or lower arch at night when you are sleeping to help protect your teeth from grinding.
