Defective fillings, missing teeth, misaligned teeth, and faulty crowns/bridges, along with ill-fitting removable full or partial dentures, can change your normal bite and cause you to grind your teeth.
Grinding may not seem like a significant problem to you; however, if left untreated, it may result in more severe problems down the road (i.e., headaches, jaw, mouth, neck, face, and back pain). We offer nightguards to patients on a case-by-case basis. They are completely metal-free and are generally made of hard acrylic material to prevent tooth wear, chipping and jaw pain. We recommend nightguards for people who suffer from bruxism (tooth grinding). Please ask us about this non-invasive procedure.
