I grind my teeth. Can you help?
Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can adversely affect your sleep. Not only that, but it can cause real damage. Your jaws can exert enough pressure on your teeth that you could crack a tooth, wear down your teeth, or cause painful head and neck aches.
Dr. Chris Forte makes custom night guards to protect against bruxism. A night guard provides a protective barrier between your teeth that absorbs some of the force exerted by your jaw. Wearing a custom night guard can help prevent damage that may result in extensive dentistry in the future.
