If you grind or clench your teeth you are not alone, over 10 million adults in the UK are affected by this increasingly common condition.
It can happen when you are asleep and you wake up with a stiff jaw or tenderness when you bite. Migraines, headaches, head and neck pain, aching muscles and damaged teeth are other common problems.
Reducing your stress levels often helps combat this problem. If this doesn’t work, make an appointment to see us. We can create a custom-made bite guard to wear while you sleep.
A bite guard can even out the pressure across your jaw and create a physical barrier between your upper and lower teeth to protect them from further damage. They can also reduce grinding noises you make at night.
