If you grind your teeth at night Virginia H. Ellis, DDS Dental Corp's experienced team has an easy fix — night guards for patients in and throughout Orinda, California.
If you wake up with a throbbing and tender jaw in the morning, you might grind your teeth or clench your jaw when you sleep. Some people also experience distressing headaches and toothaches, as well. This is a condition called bruxism, which affects both adults and children.
The exceptional dentists at Virginia H . Ellis, DDS Dental Corp can help alleviate the symptoms of bruxism by creating a night guard that you wear on your teeth while you sleep.
The dental team uses an impression of your teeth to design and create a high-quality night guard that's specially made for your teeth and mouth. Since the night guard is tailor-made for you, it's comfortable enough to wear while you sleep and prevents you from grinding your teeth.
If you don't wear a night guard but continue to grind your teeth, you run the risk of doing severe damage to your teeth over time. You might find yourself in need of veneers, crowns, or other cosmetic dental work, especially if you cause damage to permanent teeth.
