Treatment For Teeth Grinding

Do you grind or clench your teeth? Are you waking up with headaches or a sore jaw? A night guard or occlusal guard may be recommended to you to help protect your teeth from wearing down prematurely or to improve chronic headaches. At your next appointment, ask us if we think you would benefit from one of these.

If Dr. Jeffrey or Dr. Trenton Paffenroth feels that you would benefit from a preventive appliance, we can make a custom-fit guard to prevent you from grinding or clenching your teeth. We will take impressions of your upper and lower teeth and an impression of your bite so that the dental lab knows how your teeth fit together. We will send these models and bite impression to a dental laboratory where they will custom fabricate a guard using specialized materials.
