If you are a person who reacts to stress by grinding or clenching your teeth, you may have a serious condition known as bruxism. (You may not even know you do this!)

Common symptoms of bruxism include:

  • Sore jaw
  • Headaches
  • Ear aches

If not treated, it can harm your teeth as well as the muscles and tissues around your jaw. It can also contribute to problems such as TMJ dysfunction, insomnia, eating disorders, and depression.

Thank goodness relief is possible with our special oral appliance known as a night guard. For many people, simply wearing a night guard is enough to eliminate the problem. Worn while your sleep, a night guard will protect your teeth and prevent them being grinded together. We can custom make your night guard after an initial consultation at our Montclair Dental Spa office.
