Grinding of the teeth is a very common issue and there are many reasons people do it. Stress and simple habit are among the common causes. Since people tend to grind their teeth the most while they are asleep, it is almost impossible to stop the grinding completely.
Over time, excessive grinding of the teeth can make teeth smaller, wear out enamel, crack teeth, and create jaw pain. These are just some of the issues that can occur, leaving you facing the potential of many procedures and an expensive dental bill.
Teeth can be protected from grinding with a simple night guard. The guard helps you rest easy at night knowing that your teeth are not being damaged, keeping your smile looking great.
Dr. Britton can create a night guard that will fit comfortably in your mouth. He loves to save teeth in any way possible, and the night guard is a great choice for those who grind their teeth.
