Nightguards for Teeth-Grinding or Bruxism
Many people grind or clench their teeth during sleep. Dentists refer to this condition as bruxism. It causes pain in jaws, headaches, or earaches. Most people who suffer from bruxism don't even realize they grind teeth because this condition usually occurs when they are sleeping. If not corrected, it can cause cracked or chipped teeth, broken teeth, and even a tooth loss.
Non-Invasive Bruxism Treatment
Nightguards offer non-invasive and cost-effective bruxism treatment. Using nightguards provides an easy and simple way to prevent damage or wear to your teeth that repetitive teeth grinding can cause. Our cosmetic dentist in La Crescenta can make custom-tailored nightguards from a soft and comfortable material that perfectly fits your teeth. You can place the nightguard over the top or bottom teeth arch at night. This prevents direct contact with your opposing teeth when you clench or grind your teeth during sleep.
It's easy, fast and secure.
