A simple step to improve your health & sleep
Dr. Travis Lee at Ocean Breeze Dental Care has over 20-years experience in equipping patients who clench or grind their teeth with a custom night guard to protect their teeth and improve airflow for better sleep.
If you suffer from painful jaw joints due to jaw joint dysfunction, also known as TMJ, this can be due to bruxism. Bruxism is the clenching and grinding of the teeth at night while you sleep, and an occlusal guard (a.k.a. night guard) can provide relief, often immediately. Clenching your teeth may put excess force on the supporting tissue of the teeth and could increase the rate at which these tissues are destroyed, leading to fracture of teeth and possibly gum disease.. Custom night guards fit comfortably and are able to provide relief for the patients with even the worst bruxism. Please contact our General & Cosmetic Dental Practice in West Los Angeles for a consultation if you experience any of the following symptoms:
Headaches or migraines
Head, neck, or shoulder pain
Ringing in the ears
Fatigue during the day
Clicking or locking jaw joints
The knowledgeable & compassionate dental professionals at our West Los Angeles office can work with patients who suffer from any of these symptoms. A customized mouth guard is made by a dental professional by taking an impression of your teeth and bite to determine the best fit available for your circumstances. These dental appliances can ensure that your jaw muscles relax, reduce headaches, and even help you get a better night sleep.
At the dental office of Ocean Breeze Dental Care in Los Angeles, CA 90025, we are firm believers in ensuring our patients are consistently staying informed of the latest and greatest advancements in technology and techniques. For you, this means you get the best treatment that dental professionals can offer.
