It’s no fun to wake up with a throbbing headache or a sore jaw. If teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) is wreaking havoc on your life, it’s time you visited Dr. Dobry for relief. Just as he has for many other residents in and around Clinton Township, he offers you hope to be free from the harmful effects caused by grinding your teeth.
One of the ways we treat teeth grinding and headaches is with an FDA-approved oral appliance known as the NTI-tss®. Made of clear acrylic, this innovative device fits over the four front teeth to keep them and your back teeth apart when your jaw muscles are clenched.
By preventing your back teeth from grinding together, you can:
- Relieve muscle tension in your temples, helping prevent migraine and tension headaches
- Wake up feeling more rested, without any headaches or jaw pain associated with teeth clenching
Dobry Dental also offers custom mouthguards designed specifically to treat bruxism. These appliances usually fit over your upper teeth to help you:
- Stop grinding your teeth while sleeping
- Reduce damage to your teeth enamel
- Eliminate jaw pain and headache pain
After your exam, Dr. Dobry will advise you on which treatment option will work best for your situation. If your pain is associated with your temporomandibular joints (TMJ), he will refer you to a specialist for treatment.
