Bruxism or Teeth Grinding

Do you know that you grind your teeth?
Has the Dentist told you that your teeth are wearing away through grinding?

We know that there are no universally proven techniques or methods that will stop people grinding their teeth.
For night grinders we can make you an "occusal splint" (or Night Guard). This simple appliance is worn at night giving them a protective layer against damage. We really want to work with you to save your teeth from the damage of excessive wear.

Have you also read about methods to improve the quality of your sleep e.g. relaxation methods; good sleep habits - avoiding alcohol, caffine and computers in bed!

Sometimes we may suggest you investigate the relationship between sleep apnoea and bruxism and respiratory issues and bruxism.

When you clench or grind your teeth it is important that you seek sound advice from a dentist.
