Teeth Grinding Appliances
Teeth grinding or bruxism is a common problem though most people don’t realise how debilitating it can get. This can lead to the painful Temporomandibular disorder (TMD) which can affect your doubt. The problem is this condition happens unconsciously meaning you might never discover you have a problem until it worsens.
If you are experiencing jaw muscle pains, ear pain, teeth sensitivity, neck pain and sleep disorders it is important to visit our clinic for diagnostic testing. The devices used to prevent this condition are recommended after evaluating your particular condition by one of our dentists.
We have a wide range of teeth grinding appliances including the popular clear plastic device that resembles a mouth guard. This keeps your teeth apart preventing damage to the surface. Our dentist will also give instructions on how to avoid tooth grinding to avoid further damage.
