Damages caused from Clenching and Grinding

Updated: Nov 23, 2022

Good day,

If you have facial pain, TMJ ( temporomandibular joint) disorder, teeth abrasion, shoulder ache, neckache, headache, you might be clenching or grinding.

By wearing night guard, specifically made for your teeth, you can prevent damaging your teeth and the cartilage ( part of TMJ). You can prevent bone loss and muscle pain. You can heal your shoulder, neck and head ache.

You can take Vitamin C and magnesium at night to prevent clenching.

Sometimes some medicines like Prozac causes bruxism.

Please read my post about Botox to help with bruxism.

We are here to help. Please give us a call.
