If you grind or clench your teeth while sleeping or awake, you may be experiencing a common oral health concern known as bruxism. While this may seem like a harmless habit, it can actually cause significant damage to your teeth, especially during the night when you’re unaware of the excessive amount of pressure you’re placing on your teeth as they grind together. Our skilled dentist can custom craft nightguards that create a physical barrier between your rows of teeth, protecting your smile from unconscious damage during sleep. To make your appointment with Dr. Hattaway, and to learn more about night guards for bruxism in Carrollton, Texas, call Indian Creek Dental today at 972-836-8653.
