Beat Bruxism and the Daily Grind with a Nightguard from Dr. Carmen

May 2, 2011

We know how stressful life can be. With rush-hour traffic, deadlines at work, bills to pay—it’s enough to leave you grinding your teeth.

But all the pressure and motion can wreak havoc on your smile, damaging your teeth and leaving you with a sore jaw, headaches, or earaches. What’s worse, many who respond to stress by grinding their teeth do it while they’re asleep, leaving them unable to consciously stop.

This painful condition, known as bruxism, can only get worse is left untreated. Worn out jaw muscles and a bite left changed by worn down teeth can contributes to symptoms of TMJ dysfunction. Insomnia, depression, and eating disorders can even become a problem. All of which means, if you think the daily grind is getting to you, it’s time to see Dr. Carmen. With a nightguard from our Norman office you can finally rest easy!

Comfortable Relief for Patients with Bruxism

Nightguards work by preventing the grinding and clenching that damage your teeth and muscles. For many patients, simply wearing a nightguard while sleeping is enough to erase the symptoms of bruxism.

How can you get started? First, let us give you a tooth-by-tooth inspection and take impressions of your teeth that same day. After an hour, your nightguard will be ready and you’ll be on your way to a more restful night and a more comfortable life.

Patients in Norman Can Smile Again

If bruxism is ruining your smile, contact our Norman office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Carmen. If a nightguard is what you need, we can take a mold of your mouth in our office right that day.

Want an escape from the daily grind? Dr. Carmen can help!
