Teeth grinding is a common oral habit that typically occurs during nighttime sleep. While it is likely disturbing your partner, teeth grinding can also wreak havoc on your dental health. At Elegant Smiles, we offer non-invasive and long-term general dentistry treatments for patients that engage in teeth grinding or teeth clenching on a regular basis. Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, puts excessive strain on your jaw muscles and it can wear down your enamel over time.
Our Brookhaven dentists are experienced and highly qualified to help patients avoid the consequences of bruxism. Patients who grind or clench their teeth often suffer from TMJ problems, such as jaw stiffness, jaw pain or morning headaches. In addition, you may find that your bite begins to change or your teeth wear down prematurely. This can all be avoided by wearing a custom nightguard from Elegant Smiles.
Protect Your Smile and Sleep Better
We understand that wearing an appliance while you sleep may prompt hesitation. However, you can trust that our nightguards are made with smooth, top quality materials, and they are custom fit for ideal comfort. Most importantly, wearing a nightguard to prevent teeth grinding leads to a healthier smile and more enjoyable day. If you are considering treatment for your bruxism habit, our dentists will take ample time with you to discuss your options and explain how a nightguard can help.
