A majority of patients clench/grind their teeth at night time when they are sleeping. This can be very traumatic, not only for your teeth, but also for your jaw muscles and TMJ. A custom fitted nightguard that repositions your jaw to prevent stress on the muscles and joints and protect the teeth is imperative in preventing future problems. The stress from clenching/grinding can lead to tooth wear, fractured teeth, gum recession and TMJ disease.
