Do you think you have “teeth grinding or clenching”, commonly called bruxism? We have solutions for you!
It can manifest itself as a toothache or jaw pain when you wake up in the morning. Bruxism is an unconscious movement or friction of the teeth. Bruxism does not only occur at night when you are sleeping; it can also happen while you are awake.
If you suffer from bruxism, your dentist may ask you to wear an occlusal plaque to protect your teeth from damage caused by this grinding. This device stabilizes the occlusion, can relieve joints and prevents contact between the upper and lower teeth.
For more details or any dental problems, do not hesitate to make an appointment to see your family dentist, Renaud Gagnon.
