Conditions such as bruxism are more than just uncomfortable for patients. The clenching and grinding that occurs with bruxism can be troubling in more than one way. In fact, bruxism can cause significant damage to the smile. The tightening of the jaw can contribute to the development of temporomandibular joint disorder and can wear natural teeth down and cause breakage of restorations. With the use of a custom mouth guard, patients in the area of Aliso Viejo, CA can protect their smile and reduce the tension associated with this condition.
