Teeth Grinding and TMJ Disorder Treatment at Hershey Family Dentistry

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a condition characterized by the grinding or clenching of teeth, often unconsciously during sleep or under stress. It can lead to a variety of dental and health issues, including tooth wear, jaw pain, headaches, and even temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).

At Hershey Family Dentistry, we understand the impact that bruxism can have on your dental health and overall well-being. Our team is dedicated to providing effective treatment options to help you manage this condition and protect your teeth.

One of the most common and effective treatments for bruxism is the use of a custom-fitted night guard. These guards are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth and provide a protective barrier to prevent grinding and clenching while you sleep.

If you suspect that you or a loved one may be suffering from bruxism, the first step is to schedule a consultation with our team at Hershey Family Dentistry. During your visit, we will discuss your symptoms, conduct a thorough examination, and determine if a custom night guard is the right solution for you.

If a night guard is recommended, we will take impressions of your teeth to create a guard that is specifically tailored to your mouth. We will also provide you with instructions on how to care for your night guard and ensure its longevity.

Bruxism can be a challenging condition, but with the right treatment, you can protect your teeth and alleviate discomfort. At Hershey Family Dentistry, we are committed to providing our patients with personalized care to manage bruxism and other dental health concerns. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact us today.
