  • Many people don’t realize they grind or clench their teeth. Teeth grinding often happens as we sleep, caused not just by stress and anxiety but by sleep disorders, an abnormal bite, or teeth that are missing or crooked. Symptoms include a dull headache or a sore jaw. You could have teeth that are painful or loose from severe grinding. This can lead to fractures in your teeth. Your dentist can fit you with a mouth guard to protect your teeth during sleep. If stress is the cause you need to find a way to relax. Physical therapy, muscle relaxants, counseling and even exercise may help reduce tension. Don't make your teeth the brunt of your stress.

  • NTI is a unique night guard that helps “de-program” your muscles from wanting to clench or grind. Talk with Dr. McDowell if you feel you would benefit from such treatment.
