Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can cause serious issues that impact your daily life including pain, headaches, and even tooth loss.
Dr. Jeb S. James provides bruxism treatment in Bay City, TX, using custom occlusal splints to alleviate symptoms and protect your smile.
Why should I seek professional treatment for bruxism?
A Custom Mouth Guard Provides Several Invaluable Benefits:
Protect Your Smile
A splint can prevent excessive wear and extensive damage to your teeth by evenly distributing the force exuded when grinding in your sleep.
A Comfortable Solution
A smooth, BPA-free plastic is used to create your mouth guard which should not irritate your gums or lips. Additionally, your splint is designed to fit comfortably against your teeth.
Prevent More Costly Treatment
Without intervention, bruxism can cause serious damage to your teeth which will result in the need for costly restorative treatments to repair your smile.
