Tulsa Night Guard Dentist

Do you grind or clench you teeth during sleep? You may have a bad habit call bruxism. Bruxism is an oral paranormal activity in which people clench their jaw or grind their teeth. Bruxism is most commonly a nocturnal habit and it can lead to serious dental problems. Dr. Mike Hinkle of Utica Dental offers a treatment that is proven to protect your teeth from further stress and damage: a dental night guard from Utica Dental in Tulsa.

Bruxism Treatment
The cause of bruxism is unknown; however, experts agree that stress and anxiety perpetuate the habit. Though many doctors advise patients to reduce their stress and manage anxiety, at Utica Dental, we understand that this is easier said than done. That's why Dr. Mike Hinkle offers Tulsa dental night guards. A night guard is a plastic tray that fits over your teeth to protect them from the damage of bruxism. It provides a protective barrier and cushion between your teeth and relieves the pressure of grinding and clenching.

Advantages of a
Night Guard
At Utica Dental, all prescribed night guards are custom-fabricated to ensure the best fit and optimal protection. In addition to protecting your teeth from further damage, this treatment can also alleviate painful symptoms associated with bruxism, such as tense muscles, jaw pain and headaches.
