What is Bruxism?
Bruxism is a condition that involves regular grinding and clenching of teeth. Oftentimes, patients aren’t even aware that they are grinding their teeth because it is done at night. If left untreated, bruxism can lead to constant headaches, TMJ problems and damage to your teeth. We offer high-quality bruxism treatment that uses a mouth guard that is worn to protect your upper and lower teeth from coming into contact.
