Want to learn more dental procedures and the different types of dentistry? Meet Cochrane dentist, Dr. Gaganpreet Dhillon at Cochrane Rise Dental. We educate our patients with dentistry procedures so you know you’re in the right hands when it comes to having a beautiful smile.
Stress-induced teeth grinding and clenching (also known as bruxism) is more common than you might think, and it can seriously damage your smile, cause your enamel to wear thin leading to sensitivity, or even cause one or more of your teeth to break. A custom nightguard will protect your teeth from excessive strain, and ensure that your oral health is not affected by bruxism. If your bruxism is chronic, there may be an underlying functional problem other than stress and a different type of sleep appliance or treatment may be recommended.
