Grinding Your Teeth?
Night Guards are the best defense for your teeth
Like most Americans, you’re probably busier than ever. Between working, family/social life and schooling our stress levels have risen and we are trying harder and harder to keep up with it all. Unfortunately, all of this “busy-ness” can take a toll on dental health, and we have noticed an increase in patients with bruxism, or teeth grinding.
Many people grind their teeth or clench their jaw without even realizing it – especially when sleeping. If you are waking up with headaches, a sore jaw, sensitive teeth or noticed a few chips, chances are you are one of the 10% of American adults who suffer from this condition.
Fortunately, there are treatment options that can prevent damage to your teeth. If you suspect you are grinding your teeth, make an appointment to see Dr. Vermet today. After evaluating your condition, Dr. Vermet can fit you with a custom mouthguard to wear at night and prevent damage. To find out more, call Dr. Vermet’s office at 313-882-2300
