Custom Night Guards
A large number of 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.
Should you suffer from TMD problems, the team at Dr. Theodore Safer Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can fit you with a night guard, a plastic mouthpiece that fits over your upper (or lower) teeth, to lessen the damaging effects of clenching or grinding your teeth and help you feel better.
