GRINDING TEETH,HEADACHES OR JAW/NECK PAIN?
Bruxing (grinding or clenching of the teeth) can lead to premature wear on the biting surfaces of the teeth as well as TMJ (Temperomandibular Joint) Dysfunction. Snoring and bruxing can be related. See our snoring section for more information on relieving symptoms of snoring and sleep apnea.
Symptoms may include jaw pain, limited movement of the jaw, joint noises (with or without pain), neck pain and/or headaches. These conditions can often be effectively controlled and treated by a bite plate with or without massage therapy and medications.
Snoring and bruxism can be related.
Sports guards or mouth guards are not simply for protecting teeth from damage, they are equally as important in reducing concussions in sport-related injuries. A custom fitted sport guard is FAR SUPERIOR to the boil-and-bite, one-size-fits-all types that are available at sporting goods stores (and are surprisingly affordable!).
A custom fitted sports guard that is both retentive and comfortable is key to having the guard in proper position during any impact. This is critical for the guard to provide proper protection and thus prevent injury.
