Teeth Grinding / TMJ Problems

TMJ – temporomandibular joint – problems as well as increased wear and strain on the teeth are triggered by the patient’s so-called grinding. The patient often rubs his teeth unconsciously while sleeping. This constant overload damages the temporomandibular joint, the hold of the teeth in the jaw and rubs off the tooth enamel. The most common therapy is wearing a removable grind guard that is worn during sleep.The thin and adapted guard hardly bothers the patient while sleeping and prevents permanent damage. We will determine with you whether you need a grind guard and which kind is the most suitable for you.
