If you wake up with pain in your jaw, a dull headache or tooth pain, you may may be suffering from bruxism. Bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding, affects about 10 to 15 percent of adults, according to the American Dental Association.
One of the most common and effective treatments for bruxism is a night guard. This appliance is worn over your teeth while you sleep to prevent the surfaces of your teeth from grinding together which can cause chips and cracks and jaw pain. We are proud to offer our patients custom-made, high-quality, custom-made night guards that fit perfectly because they are made from an impression of your mouth.
If you would like more information about how a night guard can offer you comfort and protection, call us today at (630) 318-0988.
