Teeth Grinding Treatment
Grinding your teeth can put a lot of stress on your temporomandibular joints, which are the hinged joints of your jaw on either side of your head. Tension and exertion and the TMJs can lead to back, neck and shoulder pain, as well as frequent headaches, facial soreness and tooth pain.
A habit of teeth grinding and clenching is sometimes caused by stress and anxiety. It may also be caused by having a misaligned bite or missing teeth. We may be able to reduce your grinding by restoring a proper bite.
Teeth Grinding Treatment and Tooth Repair
If you believe you may be grinding your teeth while you sleep, Dr. Herbert can provide a custom mouth guard you can wear at night. This mouth guard will protect your teeth and jaws from painful teeth grinding symptoms.
At Prescott Dental Arts, we can provide restorative treatments if your teeth have become damaged, worn or broken because of teeth grinding. Dental crowns are a versatile restoration that can restore the shape and size of worn and broken tooth. We’ll help you restore a great smile that you can be proud to share.
