Help for teeth grinding
If you grind your teeth in your sleep, you may think that there is nothing you can do about it, but here at your dentist in W1, we can help you with many jaw problems. Teeth grinding or bruxism can occur for many reasons, from sleep disorders to our bites not meeting correctly in the middle. If we grind our teeth in the night we can wake up with aching jaws, headaches, and sometimes earaches.
One solution for bruxism is the use of a mouth guard that fits over your teeth, stopping your teeth from grinding together and getting damaged. If your headaches and jaw aches are more serious and you are need of pain relief, there is a device called Cerezen that effectively treats jaw-related pain.
Cerezen uses the latest 3D printing technology to manufacture inserts that sit in your ear canal and effectively encourage the jaw to revert to a relaxed position, combating teeth grinding.
