Bruxism, or the clenching of the teeth, can put pressure on the muscles, tissue, and other surrounding structures of the jaw. Not only does this cause your teeth to wear and other jaw disorders, but it can cause pain in the head, neck and ears. If you find that you are experiencing these symptoms, it is possible that you have temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) and may need treatment.

We will recommend a custom-made night guard so that it will fit into your mouth the best way possible to give you a good night’s sleep while reducing symptoms associated with TMD.
