Some of the most common signs and symptoms associated with bruxism include:

  • Headaches
  • Jaw pain
  • Worn teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder)

Teeth grinding, although more prominent at night, can also occur throughout the day, especially if brought on by increased stress. If you are beginning to notice that these symptoms are developing, you should seek professional treatment and look for ways to de-stress and relax.


A nightguard is a custom-made oral appliance our team will provide you after a formal diagnosis. We’re proud to offer this form of bruxism treatment in Richardson, TX and North Dallas because it will benefit your smile by preventing your teeth from grinding against each other and alleviating unnecessary pressure on your jaw’s joints. Because this condition is often associated with temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), wearing an oral device will help to curb any additional symptoms that can lead to TMD.

Not only will you begin to experience a more restful night’s sleep, but your oral health will begin to improve, and you’ll feel less pain as time passes.

  • Perfect Fit: Custom nightguards are designed based on impressions of your teeth, ensuring a comfortable and precise fit.
