Do you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep? This practice, called bruxism, can lead to more serious problems, including tooth misalignment, loss of tooth enamel, broken or chipped teeth, jaw problems, tooth pain, and headaches. Let Dr. Murphy custom fit you with a mouthguard to ease the pressure that grinding and clenching put on your teeth.
What is a Mouthguard?
A mouthguard is a customized oral appliance that fits snuggly over your teeth and protects them from the friction and pressure of constant grinding and clenching. A mouthguard will not cure your bruxism, but it will go a long way towards preventing the damage that grinding and clenching cause.
The solution to your problems
If you grind and clench your teeth at night, the damage can be extensive and may continue to get worse over time. One way to stop that damage from harming your oral health irreparably is to see Dr. Murphy and get fitted for a custom mouthguard.
