During the night some patients clench and grind their teeth – a surprisingly common condition called bruxism. Patients are often unaware they have bruxism until they become aware of the symptoms. These include:

  • Jaw pain
  • Facial or neck pain
  • Sore teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Chronic headaches or migraines

 

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact the clinic for an examination.

 

Having a nightguard fitted for use at night can help stop the grinding and prevent further damage to your teeth. Nightguards are custom-made at our own on-site laboratory.
