ABOUT TEETH GRINDING
Up to 1/3rd of the population are teeth grinders, half of whom become chronic enough to require treatment. Teeth grinding is most common at night while sleeping. When diagnosed early, teeth grinding can be treated before it causes permanent damage to the teeth.
Constant grinding wears down the surface of the tooth, exposing the soft dentin beneath the enamel. Some of the damage that can occur includes: chipped teeth, tooth flattening and tooth wear, cracked tooth enamel, cracked, loose or broken fillings, tooth loss and gum recession. But, there’s a solution that can help prevent all of that damage caused by teeth grinding: The Doctor’s® NightGuard Advanced Comfort®.Protect Your Smile
