Bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, is a painful condition that causes patients to clench and grind their teeth in their sleep. Most people with bruxism don’t realize it’s occurring, but chronic nighttime grinding causes unpleasant and ongoing symptoms:

  • Jaw pain and stiffness
  • Sore gums
  • Sensitive and broken teeth
  • Flat, short, or blunt teeth surfaces
  • Earaches
  • Chronic dull headaches
  • Clicking or painful jaw joints

Dr. Campbell helps bruxism patients achieve relief with the use of nighttime mouthguards. These nightguards are custom-made to rest comfortably along the teeth and gums. A soft inner layer protects the teeth, while a hard, durable outer layer prevents grinding and clenching. The use of a nightguard to treat bruxism is simple, non-invasive, and effective.
