Northampton Teeth Grinding

March 26, 2019

Dental visits are more than just about cleanings and cavities. As important as routine care can be, if you have any other oral issues or problems, your dentist can help. One common issue among patients of all ages is teeth grinding. Whether you do it in your sleep or when you are nervous, teeth grinding can have a detrimental effect on your dental health over time - but we here at Modestow Family Dentistry can help. If you are interested in getting care for Northampton teeth grinding, then our dental experts can make sure that you get the care you deserve.
Providing dental care to the Northampton and Florence area for over 50 years, Modestow Family Dentistry delivers the highest quality family, cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry from the comfort of our state-of-the-art offices. We offer a wide range of services, including comprehensive dental exams, periodontal procedures and treatments, teeth whitening, veneers, dentures, dental crowns, dental implants, CEREC crowns, dental bridges, as well as snoring and bruxism treatment for those that need it. Bruxism refers to teeth grinding, and it can often happen you are least aware of it. For many bruxism sufferers, the majority of the teeth grinding, clenching, and gnashing can occur while sleeping. Over time, this constant friction and pressure can wear down your teeth, exposing the roots and weakening the enamel. For people who have teeth grinding issues, their teeth may be more brittle as well as prone to decay and other issues. Jaw problems like TMJ are also common and can cause chronic symptoms such as neck and face pain, jaw pain and stiffness, plus much more. For Northampton teeth grinding treatment, we offer night guards that are custom made to fit comfortably in your mouth while also preventing any damage caused by teeth grinding.

If you often wake up with a sore jaw, you may very well grind your teeth at night and suffer from bruxism. For more information on Northampton teeth grinding and what you can do to treat it, call us here at Modestow Family Dentistry.
