When you grind your teeth every once in a while, there isn’t really much reason to worry about it. When healthy, your teeth can withstand an enormous amount of pressure without any harm being done to their enamel (protective outer layer). However, grinding your teeth constantly and consistently, especially when you don’t even realize it, can overwhelm even the healthiest and strongest of your teeth.

Then, we’ll work with you to devise the best treatment plan to help you stop grinding your teeth. (more…)
