Our general dentistry practice is open to patients of all ages. Many patients come to see us because they need night guards to help them with a serious dental issues including teeth grinding or TMJ problems. If you grind your teeth at night, this can cause TMJ problems which can include an aching or pain in your jaw when you speak or chew. Night guards can help patients with teeth grinding problems and also keep the patient from causing damage to their teeth or jaw. When a patient grinds his or her teeth it can cause teeth to chip or become otherwise damaged. When a patient constantly grinds their teeth, teeth can even begin to loosen or problems with jaw alignment can develop. At our practice, our dentist Lubbock TX can provide patients with custom-made mouth guards in either hard or soft materials. Many people grind their teeth or clench their jaws out of stress. This condition, also referred to as bruxism, often occurs while a patient sleeps. Teeth grinding can also be caused by certain types of sleep disorders, or by teeth that are missing or crooked. If you grind your teeth, you may experience dull headaches, soreness in your jaw, painful or loose teeth, or even damaged teeth. You may be surprised to learn that teeth grinding is also very commonly found in children. However, due to the fact that the child’s teeth and jaws grow so quickly, it is not usually a damaging habit, and most will outgrow it by the time they reach their teens. Children generally grind their teeth due to an irritation in the mouth, allergies, or misaligned teeth.
