Teeth grinding, a condition clinically referred to as bruxism, can cause a wide range of oral health concerns if not corrected. Tooth sensitivity, headaches, and jaw, neck and ear pain are all potential signs of teeth grinding. Over time, teeth grinding can cause long-term damage, including broken, chipped, or cracked teeth.
If you suspect that you grind your teeth during sleep, Dr. Sharp can help you determine whether or not a medical condition may be contributing to this problem.
Once diagnosed with bruxism, our doctors at Glow, your dentist in Castle Rock, can create custom-fitted mouth guards for you to use during the night while you sleep. Your custom-fitted mouth guards are created from a simple impression of your top and bottom teeth, and made in the lab. Drs. Skinner and Ryan will take great care to ensure that your mouth guard fits perfectly so you can rest easy.
