Stop Grinding With Nightguards
Helping You Enjoy a Good Night’s Sleep
Do you find yourself waking from a sound sleep, only to experience uncomfortable or even miserable jaw pain? If you are having recurring headaches, it is possible that you are suffering from a common condition called “bruxism,” clenching or grinding your teeth as you sleep. Many people do not even know that they grind their teeth, as it often occurs when one is sleeping. If not corrected, bruxism can lead to broken teeth, cracked teeth, or even tooth loss. Dr. Chin can provide relief from this condition!
Here are a few of the possible short-term and long-term effects of bruxism:
- Intense jaw pain
- Nagging earaches
- Painful headaches
- Cracked teeth
- Broken teeth
- Tooth loss
The consequences of teeth grinding can be very costly. Do not wait until it is too late!
Nightguards are an easy, non-invasive way to prevent the wear and damage that teeth-grinding causes over time. Custom-made by Dr. Chin from soft material to fit your teeth, a nightguard is inserted over your top or bottom arch and prevents contact with the opposing teeth.
Grinding your teeth can affect your jaw, increase the effects of TMJD (temporomandibular joint disorder) and change the appearance of your face.
Dr. Chin will be more than happy to provide you with a custom-made nightguard that will protect your teeth from damage. Call today to schedule your appointment.
