Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is a common sleep disorder which can be caused by stress, some medications, a disturbed sleep pattern or lack of symmetry in the teeth.
Bruxism can cause chips in the teeth, wear of biting surfaces and cracks in tooth enamel, all of which may destroy the biting surfaces and flatten the edges of the teeth. If left untreated,excessive tooth wear or even tooth loss can result.
At Happy Rock Dental we can rebuild a worn tooth with a single crown, or many worn teeth with multiple crowns or composite build ups. In this way we can help restore your mouth to its original state. To prevent any further damage to your teeth ( and restoration on the teeth ) ,we can also provide you with a custom-made protective night guard or bite splint.
