Our experienced dental team at Dr. Scott A. Ervin’s dental office is committed to treating all aspects of your dental health. A common condition that affects many of our patients is bruxism, also known as teeth grinding and clenching. Bruxism can wear down your teeth, cause headaches, and make your facial muscles sore. If left untreated, bruxism can cause irreparable damage to your smile and affect other areas of your health. There are many different causes of bruxism, and our caring dentist will work closely with you to determine your specific needs.
To treat bruxism, we offer night guards in Terrell, Texas. Night guards are custom-made dental appliances that are used to protect your teeth and prevent your teeth from grinding. Comfortable to wear and easy to sleep in, night guards are made from strong durable plastic and are worn snugly over the teeth. We will work closely with you to guarantee your night guard fits properly. Night guards can also be used to gently shift your lower jaw forward to prevent undue stress on certain teeth and help you sleep more comfortably. For a better night’s rest, we invite you to contact our dental team and learn more about our excellent night guards. We are excited to meet all of your dental health needs and goals.
