Teeth Clenching & Grinding
This area of dentistry is complex, and causes and symptoms vary widely between patients. Usually, people have varying degrees of wear and damage to the teeth. Like other areas of dentistry, and all health, prevention and early detection are key. As of 2017, we have been offering a more effective, and much more comfortable nightguard/appliance as part of the solution. We often recommend multiple modalities of treatment for patients with more complex symptoms like headaches and migraines, facial pain/ TMJ pain/ ear pain, neck/back pain, and many other possible related symptoms. Some of these adjunctive treatments could include meditation, physiotherapy or posture assessment, massage, chiropractic assessment, yoga, Botox, or referral to a specialist.
