Do You Clench or Grind Your Teeth
Sometimes people clench or grind unknowingly and the years go by……damage occurs and symptoms appear.
Clenching and grinding predispose us to TMJ. Long term, it will destroy your teeth, crack your teeth, cause bone loss and even damage the TMJ joint. Minimally Invasive Dentistry is about protecting and preventing damage that comes from parafunctional habits such as clenching and grinding.
You may be experiencing one or more of the following symptoms: sensitivity to cold, headaches, or ear congestion.
By determining the ideal placement of the jaw and therefore your optimal bite, we make a nightguard tailored made for you, which is worn only at night in the comfort of your home. This relaxes the muscles of the face and neck and protects your teeth. Likely, it will alleviate headaches and other symptoms of clenching and grinding.
