Do you have jaw pain, headaches or teeth that feel loose or sore? These may be signs of a nighttime teeth grinding habit known as bruxism. At the office of Drs. James Gordon and Kurtis Langdon we provide customized, easy-to-use Fishers night guards to help treat bruxism. Our night guards are portable, easy to clean and designed to fit comfortably and precisely. With the care of our highly skilled professional team, it’s easy to get much needed relief from the symptoms of bruxism.
If you clench or grind your jaw in your sleep, it can take a toll on your oral and overall health. Be sure to discuss these symptoms with your dentist at your next checkup, as they may be signs of bruxism. Bruxism can lead to TMJ disorder, which is a painful inflammation of the joints that hinge the upper and lower jaw, which can make it difficult to swallow, chew and speak. Bruxism can also cause your teeth to chip, loosen and break due to the chronic strain of forcefully rubbing against each other. Conditions such as stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, bite problems and misaligned teeth can contribute to a teeth grinding habit. To alleviate bruxism, our dentist provides Fishers night guards, which keep your teeth slightly separated while you sleep. We’ll design your night guard to achieve a precise fit and to deliver the most effective results of care. Our friendly professional team will help you adjust to wearing your night guard and will teach you how to properly utilize and maintain the appliance.
At the office of Drs. James Gordon and Kurtis Langdon, we provide state-of-the-art solutions for all your dental healthcare needs. With Fishers night guards, we can protect your teeth and jaw from the effects of bruxism. To learn more about our customized night guards or to schedule an appointment, call today.
