We Can Help You with Teeth Grinding in Mansfield, TX
Do you grind or clench your teeth at night? This is called bruxism, & it can lead to serious negative effects on your oral health. Some of the symptoms linked to bruxism include: cracked & fractured teeth, wearing away of teeth & jaw, TMJ dysfunction & chronic headaches. Yes, even headaches can be caused by teeth grinding. If you wake up in the mornings & you have a sore jaw or intense headaches, it might be a case of bruxism.
At Creekside Family Dental, we help many of our patients who suffer from bruxism. Because night time teeth grinding can have disastrous effects on your teeth & jaw, it is recommended that you get a mouthguard that you can wear at night while you sleep.

Our mouthguards are also much more durable than generic alternatives. Because they are a perfect fit, there will be less wear & tear by your teeth over time. In addition, our mouthguards are made of extremely strong materials & can last up to ten years.
