Teeth Damage at Night

Protect your teeth all night long

Whether it is an involuntary action or simply a bad habit, grinding your teeth can lead to an unbalanced bite. Day to day stress and worry can lead to many people damaging their teeth every night without realising, as they clench the jaw and grind their teeth.

The technical term for this condition is Bruxism, and it can have a negative impact on your oral and overall health, from damaging and wearing down teeth to increasing teeth sensitivity and causing pain in the jaw, face and head.

At The Essex Smile Centre in Rayleigh, we can provide cutting-edge dental solutions to these nighttime problems. Our knowledgeable dentists are able to fully assess the health and function of your whole mouth and determine whether you’re grinding your teeth at night.

They can then recommend anti-clenching devices that you can wear at night to protect your teeth and jaw, and reduce any other effects that you’re experiencing to help you have a restful, comfortable night’s sleep, improving the longevity of your teeth whilst reducing the chances of painful dental problems developing in the future.

“On a visit to The Essex Smile Centre I enquired about having veneers. There was a training course on a new technique in London occurring and Stephen Keane was attending the course. I agreed to be a subject and duly had veneers.

I can categorically say that the service received before, during and after the dental work has been of an exceptional standard. They explained the processes beforehand and solved any issues very quickly. The continuing service I have received since has been very impressive. The Essex Smile Centre is polite, friendly and helpful in their service. I was impressed enough to enrol my children there and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.” – Elaine
