In today’s world, people are often feeling excess stress due to increased workload, added responsibilities and so on. If stress is a contributing factor for you and you find yourself bruxing (grinding), see what’s available from experienced dentists like Dr. Arun Narang & Associates at Oakville Dental Arts.
One dentist-recommended treatment for teeth grinding is the use of a custom made plastic night guard similar to the ones worn by contact sport athletes to protect their teeth from injury. Still, if bruxism has already taken its toll on a patient’s oral condition, he or she will need more than an individually-designed night guard. If the teeth are chipped or fractured, a patient may need a cosmetic dentist in Oakville for aesthetic dental procedures like bonding, veneers, and/or crowns. These procedures can restore an individual’s beautiful smile, and improve the person’s oral health.
