Bruxism is a habit of grinding or clenching the teeth. Clenching means you tightly hold your top and bottom teeth together. Grinding is when you slide your teeth back and forth over each other. Bruxism can happen in children and adults of any age. Custom nightguard may help many patients who are struggling with bruxism. This device can be worn comfortably throughout the night and will help protect teeth from the damaging effects of grinding so that you can rest much more peacefully.
