We see a lot of patients here that are not aware that they're grinding their teeth. When I do a first oral exam and if I see signs of grinding or if I see fracture lines, I first of all make the patient aware of what's going on. In terms of treating that, we have different options. We have different appliances that they can wear. A lot of patients don't realize ... I have patients that come in that have migraines or headaches, and they can't figure out where it's coming from. So I try to educate my patient that everything in our mouth is connected. There are muscles that are connected to our jawbones. So when they grind their teeth, it's all causing pain. So just being aware, our patients being aware of what's going on and then having a fix or a treatment for it.

Eliminate TMJ Problems With Our Help
Your TMJs (temporomandibular joints) sit on either side of your head and connect your jaw to your skull. When these complex joints are working as they should, you can open and close your mouth with no problems. However, if they become inflamed and irritated, the resulting pain can make everyday activities like talking, eating, and yawning unbearable.
Fortunately, the team at Sabal Dental has a way to help. We’ll examine your mouth, and if it looks like your TMJs are causing your pain, we can make a custom night guard for you. This simple device will fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep, moving your lower jaw forward just a bit to relieve the tension on your TMJs.
As a result of this movement, your jaw will feel better and you’ll be able to get more enjoyment out of your daily life. The oral appliance will also eliminate teeth grinding, which over time can damage your tooth enamel and require restorative dental work. You’ll also have fewer headaches, as teeth grinding is a major cause of tension and migraine headaches.
