How We Can Help
Dental Problems Bruxism Treatment Can Address
Bruxism is a condition that can cause serious issues such as headaches, jaw pain, damaged teeth, gums, and jaw bone.
Our treatments for teeth grinding are safe and effective ways to help reduce the severity of symptoms and prevent future oral health problems.
When teeth grinding is not addressed, the teeth’s enamel can wear away, exposing the teeth’s inner layers. This can cause increased tooth sensitivity to temperatures and a higher risk of tooth decay.
With our bruxism treatments, we can help reduce sensitivity and protect your teeth from further damage.
