Many patients have a tendency to grind and clench their teeth when stressed or while sleeping. This condition is known as bruxism, and it can cause significant damage to the teeth and jaw over a period of time. To protect your mouth, our dentist may recommend that you receive a custom-made night guard for teeth grinding in Phoenix and Sun City, Arizona. You can schedule your consultation with Dr. Joe Gerard by calling 602-910-3860 or paying a visit to Arizona Dental today.
