Grinding and Clenching Management

If you suspect you are grinding or clenching your teeth we are able to assess your muscles and teeth for damage get you on a treatment program.

We construct bite plates (night guards) to protect your mouth and prevent further damage. These can also help to reduce the grinding. This is usually the first line of treatment. Our bite guards are either sent to the lab or can be milled inhouse from a digital scan of your teeth.

We will also assess the damage to your teeth and determine if you need additional treatment. This can include seeing a physiotherapist or going for botox in the muscles to help relax the jaw and make you more comfortable. If your teeth have a lot of wear we may need to build them up with fillings or crowns.
