Excessive teeth grinding, known as Bruxism, can severely damage your teeth if left untreated. Nearly 80% of teeth grinding is done subconsciously while you are sleeping at night, and is often due to stress and anxiety. It's often hard to pinpoint what is the cause of your pain or irritation, so it's important to visit your Van Nuys dentist to get a solution sooner than later.
Teeth Grinding and Night Guards
Dental appliances called Night Guards protect your teeth from grinding. The guard is custom designed for your teeth, and is worn at night when grinding is the heaviest. To learn more about what your oral pain could be, be sure to contact our friendly dental staff!
