In addition to relieving head, neck, jaw joint and shoulder pains, treating bruxism and clenching is cost effective compared to ignoring the condition and exposing teeth to continued grinding. Without treatment, crowns (caps), bridges, implants and dentures are often needed to repair or replace worn and damaged teeth. Ask Dr. Wright if a nightguard can help to provide temporary relief from grinding, bruxing or clenching. Nightguards are custom-made and are easy to insert & remove.
