Do you have jaw pain, headaches, or neck and shoulder pain? You might be one of the many people who grind or clench their teeth at night – a condition called bruxism. A nightguard is a customized mouthpiece that holds your teeth and jaw in a comfortable position. This allows the muscles of your face and jaw to relax and rest, protecting you from the consequences of nighttime tooth grinding. Dr. Whittle can examine your teeth and jaw and determine if a nightguard is the right therapy for you.
