Do you wake up with headache or a sore jaw? Is your spouse or partner complaining about you making noises at night? You might have bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding. It’s a common issue, but it can also be very dangerous to the health of your natural teeth. Bruxism can exacerbate TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) and damage or even completely wear down your teeth. There are ways to reduce the amount of damage done which can be discussed with an experienced professional at Sherwood Park Denture Clinic. One method is prescribing the use of a night guard for our Edmonton patients which will limit the effects of teeth grinding.
