An individual who unconsciously clench or grind their teeth may have a condition known as Bruxism. Because most people are not aware that they are grinding their teeth at night, our talented team may recommend a visit with our knowledgeable dentist if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Frequently wake up with headaches, or aching in your jaw or ears
- A jaw that that won’t open or close completely
- If you make a grinding noise in your sleep
- Tired jaw muscles
- Flattened teeth
Dr. Hart strives to help you establish and maintain ideal oral health and can tell you if you are suffering from Bruxism. Depending on your individual circumstances, our staff at Dental Center of Simi Valley may recommend a variety of treatments including medication or a night guard. A night guard is the most common treatment for Bruxism. Our dentist will take an impression of your mouth, and then shape our material to fit your smile. Our night guards will have a snug, comfortable fit and will protect your teeth from the effects of Bruxism.
