The increased stress of modern lifestyles has brought with it an ‘epidemic’ of tooth clenching and grinding (bruxism).
Bruxism is extremely destructive to the teeth and can also lead to jaw joint (TMJ) pain, headaches and muscle related neck and back pain.
The best way to protect the teeth and help relieve other related symptoms is by wearing a slim, custom fitted nightguard whilst you are sleeping.
The dentists at North Fitzroy Dental have the experience and expertise to accurately fit and adjust nightguards so as to ensure that they are comfortable to wear and help you to sleep more soundly.
In some cases this may be related to poor sleep and this is something we will discuss with you if we see any signs of tooth wear or muscle pain.
