Save Your Teeth From Future Damage

Do you grind your teeth? If so, you could eventually suffer severe damage and discomfort. Protect yourself and your teeth by visiting our compassionate dentists and team for preventive treatment.

What Is Bruxism Treatment?

If you grind or clench your teeth regularly, you likely suffer from a disorder called bruxism. To preserve the beauty of your smile and the health of your oral cavity, Drs. Hobbs and Wyatt will recommend bruxism treatment. They will provide you with an oral appliance that will separate your upper and lower teeth. In most instances Drs. Hobbs and Wyatt will recommend you wear the appliance at night, where the device will prevent your teeth from coming into contact with one another, relieving stress on your jaws and teeth.

What Are The Advantages Of Bruxism Treatment?

Grinding may cause your teeth to chip or crack. Clenching may damage your jaw joints – anatomically known as your temporomandibular joints, or TMJs. Jaw joint damage can cause general discomfort in your face and head, or lead to tooth fractures. Bruxism treatment will train your jaw to relax and help prevent the actions that lead to damage.

Do I Qualify For Bruxism Treatment?

You may qualify for bruxism treatment if you grind or clench your teeth, or experience common symptoms such as chipped teeth, jaw pain, heightened sensitivity to chewing or extreme temperatures, and discomfort in your teeth and jaw joints. Your dentists will discuss your symptoms with you to determine the best course of action. To schedule an appointment, call DentaCare in Tyler, TX, at (903) 593-3333.
