Many of us damage our teeth during our sleep by grinding our teeth together. There are a variety of reasons for grinding but the result is damage to the teeth and eventually damage to the joint of the jaw- TMJ.
This appliance is precisely adjusted to provide the least stress for the joint and protects the biting surfaces of the teeth to prevent loss of enamel- causing the need for more time in the dental chair. The majority of us feel we don't grind or clench our teeth if there are no symptoms.
Are you waking up with headaches? Are you clenching during the day? You do not need to live with tooth or jaw pain any longer.
If you think you may be experiencing problems because of grinding teeth or jaw clenching, contact Indianapolis dentist, Dr. Walton to schedule an appointment.
