Teeth Grinding / Bruxism

Nightguard for Bruxism – Teeth Grinding

Schedule Consultation

Have you been told that you grind your teeth in your sleep? Do you find yourself clenching your jaw during the day? Bruxism is a disorder involving involuntary grinding of the teeth or clenching your jaw together. While you may be aware of this condition and control it while you are awake, it can be difficult to stop the behavior when you are sleeping. A general dentistry solution is using a specialized nightguard to protect your teeth, and we offer custom nightguards at The Dentist Centers.

Teeth Grinding / Bruxism

When you grind your teeth or clench your jaw, you are exposing your teeth to friction and pressure. Your jaw muscles are very strong, allowing you to chew tough fibers in meats and vegetables. When there is no food between the teeth, this pressure is placed directly on the teeth. Grinding can wear down the enamel, putting your teeth at risk for decay and other issues. Clenching can crack or fracture the teeth, as well as damage the jaw joint. This can lead to temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ/TMD.

Customized Dental Nightguards for Tooth Protection

If you have bruxism, you can prevent damage to your teeth and jaw with a simple customized dental nightguard. Dr. Myers and his team can create a digital mold of your teeth with an advanced imaging system and send it to a dental lab to create your nightguard. When you wear your mouthguard, it prevents your teeth from touching while you sleep. This can eliminate damage from teeth grinding or jaw clenching, protecting your smile. Since we create a nightguard that is designed specifically for your mouth, it is comfortable and easy to use, allowing you to sleep soundly while wearing it.

Do not let bruxism damage your smile. Get relief from nocturnal jaw clenching and teeth grinding with a visit to The Dentist Centers. We have offices in Sandy Springs and Alpharetta. Contact us today to schedule your exam.

I have been going here for over 9 years. I love the staff. From Dr. Myers to the front office, they are all top notch. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to get back in a room for what ever procedure I am having. I would recommend them to anyone.

Lauree W.

Best dentist ever! Dr. Myers and his staff are amazing. I have had dental challenges in the past and have been judged by other dentists. I never feel judged when I go to the dentist now. Dr. Myers also gives the least painful numbing shots that I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!

Dr meyer abd his staff have been an amazing group for the 13 years I have been there. Today specifically I was in an extreme amount of pain and they made immediate accommodations for me , and all though the procedure was not present they were compassionate , kind , and informative throughout the process. I love these people and all they have done for me!

Very pleasant experience. Very kind, caring and professional. I had mixed results from my whitening. Looks like some of the bleach stuck better and therefore whitened better. They took some x rays and suggested a crown which I may look into soon. We'll see how the money flow is. But I will definitely look to them for future needs.

I am so glad I went to cosmetic dentistry for my procedure. Dan Myers and staff made me feel comfortable. For me, the procedure was a bit stressful but I knew I was in good hands. I felt like it would never end. Yet Dan Myers never lost patients. I have been to other dentists but there is no other dentist I would rather have treating me.

Murray L.

Dr. Dan and his staff are friendly, professional, and efficient. I rarely spend time in the waiting room. I'm usually greeted by first name as soon as I walk in the door and a dental chair is already waiting for me. No high pressure sales here, just a straight-shooter dentist and a rock star team. Highly recommended.
