Many people don't know they are grinding their teeth. Dr. Grant will examine your entire mouth to determine if you need a bite splint.
~ Chipped teeth/enamel
~ Flattened, grooved, worn-down teeth
~ Cracked teeth
~ Loosened teeth
~ Periodontal (gum) problems
~ Damage to bridges or dental implants
~ A sore, tired jaw
~ Sensitive teeth
~ Loose teeth
~ Dull headaches
~ Neck aches
~ Clicking sounds when you open your mouth
Wearing a bite splint can help protect your teeth from damage due to grinding/bruxism or clenching. Because many people need to wear one at night, a mouth guard is sometimes called a night guard. The guard is custom-made out of acrylic. It may fit over your top or bottom teeth.
