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.
