What is Bruxism?
Bruxism is grinding your teeth or clenching your jaws. Bruxism often happens as we sleep, caused not just by stress and anxiety but can be by sleep disorders, an abnormal bite or teeth that are missing or crooked. Symptoms include a dull headache or a sore jaw. You could have teeth that are painful or loose from severe grinding. Bruxism can also lead to fractures in your teeth.
At Harvard Rd Dental Care we can fit you with a night guard to protect your teeth during sleep. Don’t make your teeth take the brunt of your stress.
How is the night guard made?
During the first appointment an impression of your top and bottom teeth will be taken. The impression will be sent to a dental laboratory where custom night guard will be fabricated.
