Bruxism is a common dental disorder in which an individual uncontrollably clenches and grinds their teeth while asleep. When this occurs, a person can cause serious damage to their teeth and other oral structures. Some issues that are commonly associated with bruxism include:

  • Excessive tooth wear
  • Jaw discomfort and impairment
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Tooth Fractures
  • Cracked teeth
  • Nerve damage
  • Gum Recession

One of the best ways to prevent damage from bruxism is to wear a protective night guard while sleeping. Night guards are worn inside the mouth over a person’s teeth, and they are designed to fully protect teeth from the harmful effects of bruxism. They are very comfortable to use, and most patients find that they do not cause any disturbances or disruptions while they are asleep. By wearing a night guard, you will help to ensure that your teeth and oral structures remain healthy.

If you or a loved one is suffering from bruxism and you would like to learn more about night guards, please call us at (813) 333-5277 to schedule an appointment.

Sure wish I had found them earlier!! I had a periodontist that did gum surgery on me for 13,000.00; I had to wait for my gums to heal a few months and because that Periodontist would not work with my previous dentist I had to find a new dentist for the tooth part after the implant. I went in to interview Dr. Krause (dentist) & found the office and staff exceptional AND I got a quote for the implants at HALF the cost from his partner Dr. Taylor (periodontist)!! I can only imagine how much money I would have saved on the initial surgery, I feel violated by the first periodontist. I had the implants yesterday and painless with the exception of the numbing shots initially and no pain today. Affordable Quality Care!

"I've always gotten the best service from Dr Schweizer, everyone at the office is very knowledgeable and professional, all the staff is very friendly. Since moving down to Florida, Dr Schweizer has been the only dentist I've had, which has been about 30 years. I don't think I would feel comfortable seeing any one else."
