Do you suffer from nighttime clenching and grinding or TMD? Tired of the pain and symptoms you experience every day? Katy Dental Experts in Katy, TX can help! We offer occlusal mouthguards for our patients that experience the uncomfortable symptoms of grinding and clenching.
At our Katy dental practice, we offer custom-made mouthguards for patients that experience symptoms of TMD or unconscious clenching/grinding. Each occlusal guard is custom-made per patient so that it fits properly and comfortably, allowing you to wake up each morning without the pain. They are designed to be worn on the upper teeth in your mouth and protect the bottom teeth as well, while also decreasing the painful jaw symptoms most patients experience.
Patients that suffer from TMJ/TMD or nighttime clenching and grinding that opt not to wear an occlusal guard are more prone to the painful symptoms and damage that can occur. When you grind your teeth, you are at risk of chips, cracks, and fractures. This can lead to increased risk of decay and infection. Eventually, the damage can result in costly dental interventions such as inlays and onlays, crowns and even veneers.
Ready to start your days without pain and discomfort? Contact our Katy dental office today to schedule your appointment. We’d be happy to examine your teeth and overall oral health to determine if an occlusal mouthguard might be the right option for relieving your symptoms and protecting your teeth.
