Protection from Grinding in Elgin, IL
Many people suffer from jaw clenching during sleep. This unconscious habit may manifest as teeth grinding or jaw clamping. Known as bruxism, this problem can lead to advanced teeth wear and problems with the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), better known as the jaw joints. In extreme cases, teeth cracking may even occur.
A night guard can help. This removable device absorbs pressure from jaw clenching, protecting your teeth as well as your jaws. Night guards from Won Sung, DDS, LLC are always custom-made and designed to fit your individual oral anatomy precisely. This feature makes them comfortable and effective.
Symptoms of bruxism include waking with a headache, a sore mouth, or a sore jaw and experiencing jaw locking, clicking, or popping. Please call us at (847) 741-4347 to learn more.
