Who is a candidate for treatment of Bruxism?
What can you expect during Bruxism treatment?
We will begin the treatment process with impressions, or molds. These impressions will be used to craft a brand new mouth piece, or bruxism splint, that you’ll wear. The mouth piece is comfortable and easy to wear. It provides a cushion between the upper and lower teeth so that they are not able to come into contact with each other. The mouth piece should be worn nightly in order to work effectively. We can remake and replace the mouth guard as it begins to show signs of wear.
We are proud to be serving the people of both Mountain View and El Monte for over 15 years with the ability to offer bilingual services. We welcome you to call our office today to schedule an appointment for your bruxism treatment.
