Night Guards (Clenching/Grinding)

Many people clench and grind their teeth. If you frequently wake up with soreness in your jaw or teeth, you may be clenching and grinding. When you come in for your checkup and cleaning, let us know if you've been experiencing these symptoms. Many times we can see signs of wear caused by clenching and grinding during our exam. We can make you a custom night guard to improve your symptoms and prevent further damage to your teeth and gums.

Signs of Clenching/Grinding:

  • Soreness in jaw/teeth

  • Flattened or worn teeth

  • Tightness in jaw muscles

  • Frequent headaches

  • Cheek biting
