Bruxism, or the clenching or grinding of teeth, can create an unpleasant and even painful tenderness in the jaw muscles and joints. The almost constant pressure and grinding can also wear down the surface of your teeth, leading to shorter-looking teeth and a greater susceptibility to oral problems. At the office of James M Strang Junior DDS PLLC, we can create a customizable night guard to help protect your teeth and restore your comfort. Give us a call at 719-325-7661 for more information on night guards in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We hope you will visit our dentist soon!
