Many people clench or grind their teeth to the point of destructiveness. Most people are completely unaware that they do it because, often, they do it while they sleep. The action of grinding – where your upper and lower teeth move back and forth with great force against each other – causes your teeth to flatten. This may cause temperature sensitivity, cracks in the teeth, jaw pain (TMJ), and eventual tooth loss.
Reston Dental Care can create a custom night guard to provide comfortable and effective treatment against excessive teeth wear and grinding. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact us or call 703-689-0110 today.
