Customized Mouthguards for Bruxism
Dr. Jeremy J. Borsky can help protect your teeth grinding with a customized mouthguard.
What is Bruxism?
Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is a bad habit that can wreak havoc on your teeth. If you grind your teeth when you are stressed, angry, or even when you are sleeping, you may damage your teeth and cause bite problems. We work with the patient to help break the habit of teeth grinding. An occlusal adjustment and repairing of the teeth with reconstructive procedures may also be needed.
Protect Teeth While Sleeping
Tension in your jaw causes more problems than you may be aware of. Dr. Borsky will help you to take the right steps to correct the tension and solve health issues that you didn’t know were connected to your mouth. When you’re feeling stressed or have health problems, you’re more likely to grind your teeth when you sleep. The night guards created for our Anderson Township, OH patients prevent tooth grinding, snoring, headaches, and more.
