TMJ Support and Protection from Teeth Grinding
If you’ve noticed the surfaces of your front teeth wearing down, or if you’re dealing with chronic pain in your jaw, head, or neck, you could be dealing with a condition known as bruxism, or nighttime teeth grinding. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer from these painful side effects anymore. Seek a diagnosis and treatment from D’Amico and Mauck, DDS! Your dentists can create a custom intraoral appliance, such as a nightguard, to lessen the pressure of bruxism and alleviate the resulting symptoms.
