If you wake up with jaw pain, earaches, headaches, or if you find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth, you may have a common condition called bruxism.
Although the causes of bruxism are relatively unknown, several factors may be involved. Stressful situations at home, school, work, problems sleeping, an abnormal bite, or crooked or missing teeth may contribute to bruxism. Many people don’t know that they grind their teeth, it often occurs when they are sleeping. If not corrected, grinding can lead to broken or cracked teeth, damaged fillings/crowns, or tooth loss.
There is an easy treatment for bruxism (grinding); night guards. Night guards can prevent the wear and tear that teeth-grinding causes over time. Custom-made by Dr. Florio and Dr. Kohner to fit your mouth, a night guard is inserted over your top teeth to prevent contact with the lower teeth.
Our custom made night guards are tear-resistant, comfortable, well fitted for your mouth, and easy to keep clean.
