If you spend your nights grinding and clenching your teeth while you sleep, you can cause problems with your smile, and you can experience worsening issues with jaw pain and sensitivity. The right support can both take on the active issues you have with grinding and respond to the harm that has already affected your enamel. Our Moreno Valley, CA dentist’s office is ready to talk to you about the role we can play in taking on your difficulties with persistent grinding and clenching, a problem known as bruxism. With the right form of care, you can regain your confident smile and also do something about the daily pain linked to bruxism.

The Effects Of Teeth Grinding Can Hurt Your Smile And Dental Health

It is important that you take bruxism seriously, as it can lead to bite difficulties, chronic pain, and noteworthy dental damage. During your appointment, we can both discuss your issues with nightly grinding to learn how it has affected you and evaluate your smile. To protect you against further harm, we can create a custom guard that will keep your teeth apart as you rest. To deal with the damage that has already occurred, we can look at whether you would be a better candidate for cosmetic dental work or restorative treatment.

Protecting Your Smile Throughout The Night

By wearing a custom guard supplied by your dentist, you can keep your smile safe throughout the night so that further problems with your jaw and teeth will not occur. We take care to provide appliances that are just the right shape and size to make sure that your teeth are protected, and that they will remain secure for as long as you are at rest. Beyond protecting your smile, this can lessen the pressure on your jaw so that chronic pain and stiffness do not affect you.

Dealing With Damage That Has Already Occurred

If you already have teeth that are chipped, cracked, or worn down by bruxism, we are ready to help! Both cosmetic dentistry and restorative dental work are able to take on physical damages. A cosmetic procedure can address less severe damages with conservative care. Restorative work helps when teeth are damaged to the point where their health and/or bite function are affected.
