Don't Grind Away Your Smile!
You may be grinding away your smile and not even realize it. Misaligned teeth resulting in a "bad bite" can contribute to wear on the surface of your teeth, and teeth grinding (bruxism) can even wear through the enamel into the next layer of tooth if left untreated. A bad bite can also put your jaw-to-skull relationship out of alignment, causing TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) pain or even chronic headaches.
Fixing a bite problem like grinding or misalignment may not only preserve your teeth, but also alleviate other pain to which you may have grown accustomed. Dr. Skakun may place crowns or custom-fit a nightguard to prevent teeth grinding while you sleep and give you the bite that nature intended. Protect your smile and save yourself from the pain caused by TMJ disorders!
