Nighttime Teeth Grinding Can Damage Teeth

Do you experience persistent headaches or jaw joint pain? Have you broken one or more teeth or chipped the edges off of your front teeth or crowns? These could be signs that you grind your teeth while you sleep at night. Doing so can cause significant dental concerns and health problems. At McKinney Dentist, we have a solution to help protect your teeth while you sleep from teeth grinding and teeth clenching—a dental night guard. A night guard in McKinney, TX, is a custom-fitted appliance that you wear over your teeth to protect them from nighttime teeth grinding or clenching.

  • Jaw joint pain
  • Frequent headaches
  • Migraines
  • Ringing in your ears
  • Damaged and chipped teeth, broken crowns, teeth worn down flat

Why Does Grinding and Clenching Occur?

During sleep we have no control over grinding or clenching, and unfortunately this can cause jaw pain, muscle soreness, cracked teeth, broken crowns and severe wear on your teeth. To create a custom-fitted night guard, impressions are taken of the teeth, and from those models, our lab makes a night guard to fit comfortably around your teeth. Having a “cushion” of a night guard between your teeth at night is a great way to preserve your natural teeth, as well as any dental work you have undergone.

Protect your teeth while you sleep at night.
