Teeth grinding, which is also referred to as bruxism, refers to the clenching of the teeth together tightly or rubbing them against each other. Many people grind their teeth from time to time, but for some, the severity is such that their oral health could be harmed. Teeth grinding can happen during the day, but it can also happen during sleep. Because of this, you may not be aware that you grind your teeth.
If you notice any of the following symptoms, Dr. Chiru and Dr. Suryadevara may recommend treatment for teeth grinding in Suwanee, Georgia:
– Jaw pain
– Facial pain
– Morning headaches
– Worn teeth
– Cracked teeth
Night guards are custom-made pieces of plastic that cover the top or bottom set of teeth. They help protect your teeth from the force of clenching and prevent the molars from grinding. This helps protect your teeth from damage. Our dentists can fit you for a night guard at our office to protect your smile. A mold will be taken of your teeth and the night guard is designed and created.
