Do you wake up with a stiff, tired jaw?
Are your teeth sensitive to cold drinks?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, you may be grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep. Teeth grinding is a medical condition called bruxism. Overtime if bruxism is not treated, you can develop Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder. This is characterized by headaches, sore jaws, limited opening of your mouth, as well as popping and clicking noises when you open your jaws wide. Ask Dr. Gor how we can help you treat bruxism or TMJ Disorder. Many times a nightguard appliance is all you need. A nightguard is a clear, thin removable device, custom made to fit over your upper or lower teeth as you sleep.
