Sore Jaw Dentistry
Does your jaw regularly ache when your wake up?
If you feel like you’re experiencing excessive teeth grinding, you may be at risk of suffering from permanent damage to your teeth and jaw joint.
Excessive grinding is not a normal chewing movement.
More commonly people suffer from grinding while they sleep.
It is not uncommon for a husband, wife or partner sleeping nearby to be woken by the loud grinding.
For many patients it is necessary for a dentist to make a plastic dental appliance called an occlusal splint, to prevent excessive wear of both the teeth and jaw joint.
If you suspect you have been grinding at night or your teeth appear to be wearing down make an appointment to have one of our Dentists assess, monitor and provide you with several long term solutions to manage your excess grinding.
