If you grind or clench your teeth – be warned! Over time, grinding your teeth can wear down the enamel, even though it’s the strongest substance in your body. When the enamel begins to wear down, you are actually exposing the dentin or the middle layer of the tooth, which contains the hollow tubes that lead to your nerves. That means when you drink something cold or hot, you experience pain and discomfort.
Dr. Kutsch or Dr. Renyer will be happy to discuss the benefits of a custom made mouth guard which will prevent you from grinding or clenching your teeth at night. The custom made guards are not only more comfortable to wear, but will fit your bite perfectly. Contact our office to schedule an appointment today.
