Some people have trouble with clenching or grinding their teeth. This is a common problem which can cause pain in the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), headaches, neck pain, and the wearing down of their teeth.
Night guards are devices that help to relieve tension in your TMJ area and protect teeth from the damages that clenching and grinding can cause.
Dr. Austin offers custom made night guards that are fitted to your teeth and mouth to prevent pain and damage to your TMJ and teeth. The night guard is produced and fitted to your mouth in just one visit. After you receive your night guard, Dr. Austin will have you come back to our office periodically to check your night guard and to evaluate your progress.
