Jaw Pain and Live Near Maplewood, MN? A Night Guard Could Help
Have you ever woken up with a headache or sore jaw? This could be from grinding or clenching your teeth during the night. Also called bruxism, grinding is harmful to both your jaws and your teeth. Over time, it can wear down your teeth, making them susceptible to decay, and cause cracks and fractures that may need extensive treatment to repair.
Severe grinding can also lead to Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders, resulting in difficult-to-treat facial pain. Dr. Simonson can help. At Bluejay Family Dentistry, she custom fits patients for night guards. These protective mouthpieces are fabricated specifically to your unique dental anatomy.
Wearing a night guard helps to protect your teeth and cushion your jaws against clenching and grinding as you sleep. A night guard is a simple, non-invasive treatment to help preserve your dental health and prevent future problems.
