Teeth grinding, technically called bruxism, is both a habit and subconscious action that can have an extremely adverse effect on your oral health. It erodes the enamel, which makes you susceptible to tooth decay and wear, strains the jaw muscles, can cause teeth to chip or crack, may damage restorations and, in extreme cases, leaves you with headaches or migraines.
If you suffer from bruxism, MDCS has solutions. Dr. Gutierrez or Dr. Zalatimo will diagnose the problem, help you decide which night guard option will work best for you and custom fit it to your mouth for maximum comfort and effectiveness.
When you sleep, your night guard will act as a buffer zone between your upper and lower teeth to minimize the effects of grinding and clenching. Our night guards are durable, easy to care for and won’t interfere with your speech or breathing.
