It’s estimated that close to 20% of adults suffer from the negative effects of grinding and clenching their teeth, often called bruxing. The main cause of bruxing is stress. Clenching and grinding not only causes excessive wear on your teeth, but it can also cause facial and neck muscle soreness, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) problems, arthritis pain and dysfunction.
The experienced dental team at Falmouth Dental Associates can fit you with a night guard—a plastic mouthpiece that fits over your upper and lower teeth—to lessen the damaging effects of clenching or grinding your teeth. Night guards can also correct your bite by properly positioning the teeth.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about custom night guards or to schedule a smile consultation with one of our doctors.
