Night grinding or clenching of teeth may affect the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Dr. Matt Engel works with patients on TMJ Therapies including using a Clench Guard to control the affects of night and day clenching.
The best way to treat night grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep is with a custom made night guard (or occlusal guard). This guard effectively repositions the jaw and keeps the teeth from grinding. If your clenching your jaw at night the guard will prevent you from doing damage to your teeth. Talk to Dr. Matt about having your custom night guard made. It will make all the difference in the long term health of your mouth and teeth.
