Our Fremont Dentistry Provides Dental Night Guards
Bruxism (also known as teeth grinding) is a common problem among patients of all ages, and it can actually go unnoticed for quite a while. This is because the grinding typically occurs at night when the patient is asleep. However, hints can be found in the symptoms of facial pain and worn-down teeth. If you think you may be suffering from bruxism, please don't hesitate to visit James Block Dentistry in Fremont, CA. A customized nightguard could provide your smile with the protection and support it needs.
What to expect?
During your or your child's regular dental check-up, Dr. Block will be able to diagnose irregular damage on teeth and determine if a night guard could successfully treat the issue. This guard will be made from a detailed impression of the patient's teeth so that its fit is completely personalized. It is crafted from plastic and slips right over teeth in a comfortable fashion. During sleep, the guard will prevent contact between your upper and lower teeth, as well as relieve the pressure of constant grinding and clenching.
