Custom-made Mouthguards Kallangur
Why do I need treatment for clenching or teeth grinding?
Clenching and Bruxism means clamping your upper and lower back teeth tightly together. This results in tooth wear and chipping of the teeth. The continuous forces or pressure on the muscles, tissues, and other structures of the jaw bone can lead to jaw pain, muscle soreness, headache, earache and much more.
The dentists at Prevent Dental Suite will recommend jaw exercises to help relieve the stress in your jaw, however, for additional protection an occlusal splint will be recommended for use during sleeping hours to prevent grinding or clenching. The splint will keep your upper and lower teeth from making contact while you’re asleep and, hence, prevent grinding and the resultant damage.
