Erdenheim Teeth Grinding

With a Nightguard

Do you wake up in the morning with a headache or sore jaw? You probably grind your teeth at night. It’s a fairly common occurrence.

We each go through different stages of sleep every night. In one of those stages, everyone clenches or grinds their teeth for as little as 15 seconds. Or for as long as 15 minutes.

But what’s really damaging is that the grinding and clenching force during sleep is 50% greater than it is when you’re awake. It can have a serious impact on your oral health.

If you grind your teeth at night, if your teeth are visibly worn down, or if you suffer from headaches or jaw pain, you may benefit from a protective nightguard.

Your dentist will fit you with a nightguard appliance custom-made for you. The nightguard will reduce the damage to your teeth from grinding or clenching during sleep, and reduce any grinding-related symptoms.

Dear Dr. Angel,
Thank you so very much for your phone call last Friday afternoon to check in on my daughter. Yet again, you and your team have touched our hearts in such a deep way thanks to your ongoing attention and kindness! She felt great after her appointment, and we are all re-settled back here in Haiti. Please extend our deepest thanks to your team. We feel incredibly appreciative of your intensive work with her! I can’t believe she even says she wants to become a dentist! All thanks to your positivity and creativity! Many thanks, and hope you have a good rest of summer!
