Do you wake up with headaches?
Do your teeth look flat or chipped?
Do you have teeth that are sore to biting, or that have grooves by the gum line?
You may be clenching or grinding your teeth.
In the past, a dentist might have said “Try and stop grinding.” There is a better answer.
Most grinding or clenching is triggered by a discrepancy between the position where the jaw joints should be seated and the position where the teeth fit together. By evaluating your teeth and ideal, relaxed, jaw position, we can find the best treatment for you.
For many people, a carefully fabricated bite guard can alleviate muscle pain and protect the teeth. When the biting surface of the guard is precisely fitted, it allows your mouth to close where the jaw joints belong. This can make a dramatic difference in comfort.
