How can you help me stop grinding my teeth?
oBruxism (teeth grinding) is a common problem that affects a lot of people. You may not be aware that you grind and clench. Symptoms would be if you regularly wake up with pain in your neck, head, jaw, shoulders and upper back, the following may indicate that you are grinding at night.
The doctors at Woodin Creek Dental can custom make a night guard for you that can reduce or eliminate the painful symptoms of teeth grinding that can ruin your life. Now, a night guard may not necessarily prevent your teeth from wanting to grind at night, but at least they will protect your teeth and jaw to a degree that no lasting damage is done. Grinding is often caused by a bite that is off (malocclusion) or stress, or both.
Dr. Goel and Dr. Chiang will do a thorough exam of your mouth to ascertain the possible cause. A night guard has helped many patients, and may be the ideal solution for you too. Call us today at 425-947-2727 to schedule an appointment!
