Do you experience frequent headaches? Have sensitive teeth or experience jaw (temporal mandibular joint) pain? Do you have worn teeth or often chip your teeth?
If so, you might be experiencing bruxism. Bruxism is the unconscious grinding and/or clenching of your teeth. It typically occurs at night during sleep and hence, patients are not aware that they are grinding and clenching their teeth. Bruxism can be managed by wearing a night guard. This oral appliance is designed by your dentist and custom fabricated to fit your teeth.
Are essential to protecting your teeth while you enjoy playing sports. Sports guards are custom made to be worn comfortably. At St. Catharines Dental Centre we can even make them in your favourite team colours!
