If you know or suspect that you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), Madden Dental can give you the relief you need. Many people who grind their teeth are unaware of the condition because it occurs while they sleep. Common signs of nighttime teeth grinding include:

  • Chronic jaw, facial, and ear pain
  • Awakening with a tired or tight feeling in the jaw
  • Frequent tension headaches and migraines
  • Excessive tooth wear, leading to chipped, flattened, cracked, or very worn teeth
  • Extremely worn tooth enamel, exposing the inner layers of the tooth
  • Indentations on the side of the tongue
  • Increased tooth sensitivity

If you notice the signs of bruxism, it is important to seek treatment. You can count on our skilled dentist, Dr. Karisha Madden, to work closely with you to determine a proper course of action. Treatment may include the use of a night guard. This is a special type of mouth guard that protects your teeth from damage and prevents teeth grinding. Your night guard will be custom made to fit your smile comfortably and effectively, allowing you to sleep peacefully while protecting your smile.
