Discover How an Oral Appliance Relieves Pain
The tooth grinding is a problem that we notice a lot. It’s a huge problem where patients truly destroy their teeth for the grinding of tooth to tooth contact. We control it by using a mouth guard to separate the teeth so that you cannot have tooth to tooth contact. Most tooth grinding takes place at night time while we sleep, so you wear the night guard at night time. If you don’t stop the grinding by separating the teeth, over time, your teeth will get shorter at a minimum, or you will break them, possibly to the point that you lose one or more teeth. Then if they get shorter over time, it ages you more quickly. You’ll look older than you really are with short teeth.
