In order to ensure that you can receive the proper treatments for any oral health conditions you may have, visit our team to assist any restorations and repairs you may need. In certain situations, you may also be suffering from oral health risks that could be leading to future dental damage down the road.
One potential treatment that our dentist can find useful for you is to the use of bite guards and night plates to treat damage due to bruxism or other similar problem. When an individual grinds their teeth while they sleep, it can often lead to worn-down teeth or chipped or cracked teeth. Furthermore, it can knock teeth out of position if it’s not treated properly.
In order for bruxism to be properly treated, it is important to always look for signs and symptoms of its presence. If you notice that your teeth are flat or worn down when you awake in the morning, or if you experience heightened tooth sensitivity, jaw pain, sore jaw muscles, cheek tissue damage, or strange markings on your tongue, it could be linked to oral health conditions such as bruxism that will need to be treated through professional care.
If you would like to learn more about bruxism, please book an appointment with Lakeview Dental Care, by contacting us at our dental office in Battle Creek, Michigan. Our number is 269-964-7660. Dr. L. C. Chilimigras and our team look forward to making your smile shine!
