Do You clench or grind your teeth

Grinding Did you know that about thirty to forty percent of people are in the habit of grinding their teeth or clenching their jaws? This condition is called ‘bruxism,’ and if severe, it can lead to a number of medical, dental, and cosmetic issues.

In some cases, grinding occurs because the top and bottom teeth are misaligned; in other cases, it’s the result of a sleep disorder or can even be stress-induced. In any case, there are a wide variety of treatment options available, including custom-fitted bite guards worn at night to prevent grinding during sleep.

If bruxism is a problem for you or for a member of your family, Doctors Blincoe and Shutt may be able to help. Schedule your appointment for a consultation as soon as possible. We can’t wait to see you! Give us a call at(502) 895-2210 or e-mail us at blinshut@bellsouth.net.
