Night Guard for Clenching/Grinding
The average life expectancy of Americans is approaching 80 years of age, but we only have one set of adult teeth. Stress is prevalent in our lives, and many of us tend to grind our teeth throughout the day, as well as at night. Many patients wake up with a sore jaw, and clenching and grinding can easily lead to cracked or worn-out teeth. A custom night guard is important to protect your teeth from such activity. If you think you grind, book an appointment with us at Missouri City Dentistry so the doctor can determine if there is another underlying cause or if a night guard is the appropriate treatment for you.
