BRUXISM - TEETH GRINDING

Bruxism is a condition that can cause you to grind or clench your teeth at night, while you are sleeping. Constantly doing this can lead to a host of problems, including pain in the jaws, cracked teeth, tooth wear, tooth sensitivity and migraine headaches.

To prevent this, our North York dentists / DSK Dental offers our patients night guards. These are small oral appliances that you can wear at night to prevent teeth clenching and grinding. Night guards are custom formed so they adhere to the contours of your mouth, in ordr to offer maximum protection and comfort.
