Teeth grinding can take a toll on your smile and disrupt your everyday activities. Millions of people are unaware that this is happening because they clench their teeth or grind them together while they are sleeping.

Teeth grinding can also be a major factor in TMJ disorders. Some common symptoms of this condition include:

  • Jaw pain
  • Frequent headaches and earaches
  • Jaw stiffness
  • Feeling like your jaw is stuck
  • Face, neck, and upper back pain
  • Clicking or popping when you close and open your mouth

Many times, orthodontic care can play a role in your overall care plan. By straightening your smile and addressing issues with your jaw alignment, you can address the cause of your grinding at the source. Our orthodontic services include:

  • Traditional Braces – If you want a tried-and-true treatment for your straight smile, this is the way to go. Metal braces work on practically any alignment issue with your teeth.
  • Clear Ceramic Braces – If metal braces aren’t your thing, you can still get the benefits of braces with our ceramic ones. These more closely match the color of your teeth, making them less noticeable than metal braces.
  • Invisalign – This is a more modern orthodontic option. It can be beneficial for many patients who have mild or moderate alignment issues. Many adults prefer this service because it is more discreet than braces.
  • Surgical Orthodontics – This option can be invaluable for patients who have a protruding lower jaw, a weak chin, or an open bite. This is done to change the alignment of your jaw, which can go a long way in fixing your smile, improving your oral health, and addressing your TMJ symptoms.
