Have you ever been told you grind your teeth at night? Do you feel yourself clenching your teeth when you are stressed? This is a condition called bruxism. Bruxism is the habitual, sometimes unconscious grinding of the teeth. This condition can cause major problems for the teeth and jaws including:
- Sore or achy jaw joints and muscles
- Broken tooth or teeth
- Chipped or flattened teeth
- Tooth sensitivity
- Gum recession
While the cause of bruxism isn’t always straightforward, the treatment can be. Left untreated, bruxism can cause major and expensive problems. At Advanced Dental Wellness we create a custom-fit night guards to prevent bruxism from further damaging your teeth.
An impression is taken of your teeth to create your custom night guard. After a quick adjustment appointment, your night guard will be fit to your needs and be ready for nighttime wear.
Athletic mouth guards
Tooth-related injuries can be a major problem for athletes of all ages. A custom-fit, professionally made athletic mouth guard can help prevent such injuries including:
- Broken tooth or teeth, chipped teeth

A custom-fit athletic mouth guard made at Advanced Dental Wellness can help prevent tooth-related injuries while also being more comfortable, less bulky and less painful to wear than a traditional boil-and-bite mouth guard.
