Do you clench your teeth and jaw while you sleep? This condition is known as bruxism, and a custom-made nightguard is your best defense. Call your West Babylon dentist so that you can rest easy.
Nighttime grinding or clenching is quite common. When necessary, Dr. Cherian and the Grace Dental Smiles team can provide custom-made night guards to help our patients stay comfortable and maintain the health of their teeth and jaws.
Do you clench your jaw or grind your teeth? Do you wake up with jaw pain or headaches? When a patient clenches their jaw or grinds their teeth, it can wear down the teeth, cause chips, cracks, or broken restorations. This condition is called bruxism, and it must be addressed to prevent lasting damage to your overall oral health. Many patients who clench and grind while they sleep do not even realize they are doing it. Our high-quality, custom-fitted night guards can prevent this condition and protect your smile.
For our patients who suffer from bruxism, our custom-made night guards can protect their teeth and jaw as they sleep. These oral appliances look very much like athletic mouth guards or clear retainers. Dr. Cherian will design a nightguard that will reduce tooth damage, relieve jaw pain, and even prevent headaches.
If you grind your teeth overnight or have noticed jaw or tooth pain when you wake, visit our team for a consultation. In many cases, an affordable nightguard is all you need to find relief. We accept most dental insurance plans, and we offer convenient payment options for those who qualify. Contact us today to learn how we can protect your beautiful smile!
