Most people try to treat the symptoms at home with pain relievers and ice packs. However, dentists can help you if your home remedies are not working. We often suggest trying mouth guards, though you may need surgery or implants.
Bruxism evaluation / treatment
Bruxism is often called teeth grinding. Though many people grind their teeth occasionally, other people seem to grind their teeth on a regular basis. This can damage your teeth and cause many other dental problems.
Clenching / Grinding Night-guards
The easiest way to fix teeth grinding is by wearing a mouthguard at night. However, if the grinding is caused by stress, you need to find ways to reduce your stress. You may also benefit from taking muscle relaxers.
We also provide treatment for dry mouth or xerostomia.
