Nightguards for Teeth Grinding, Clenching

Nightguards for Teeth Grinding, Clenching Buford, GA

Nightguards for Teeth Grinding, Clenching

Do you wake up with a sore jaw or has your sleep partner complained because you grind your teeth while you are asleep? You may suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding, a condition that can damage your teeth and jaw joint as well as annoy others trying to sleep near you. At Buford Family Dental, we have effective general dentistry treatments to help minimize the damage from bruxism for our patients, including customized dental nightguards.

When you clench your jaw or grind your teeth, it can cause serious, permanent damage to your teeth and jaw. The muscles in your jaw have incredible strength, exerting hundreds of pounds of pressure. The clenching action alone puts unnecessary pressure on the jaw joint; this can lead to disorders like TMJ or TMD, causing pain and jaw dysfunction. The teeth are also affected, with grinding wearing down the cusp, or top, of the teeth and the pressure causing small fractures in the structure.

Protection from Teeth Grinding

Since jaw clenching and teeth grinding often occur at night when you cannot control it, the best treatment is protective gear. A dental nightguard can ensure your teeth do not rub against each other and help protect the jaw from pressure by shifting the alignment. At Buford Family Dental, we can create a customized nightguard that fits comfortably over your teeth. This can prevent dental and jaw damage, plus relieve pain or discomfort. It also stops the annoying sound of teeth grinding that can keep your sleep partner awake. An added benefit is that nightguards can help with snoring.

If you have bruxism, do not let this nocturnal disorder ruin your smile or cause damage to your jaw. Contact Buford Family Dental to schedule a consultation and exam to determine if a dental nightguard is the right treatment option for you.

I chipped my tooth at 1:30pm. I called them at 2:20, and they had me in at 3:30pm. They close at 4:30. I was given the option to place a crown on my tooth that day, or make an appointment for another day. I chose to do it that day, and it was done with a smile! It was Dr. Patel’s birthday, AND he stayed past closing to assist me. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant, and knowledgeable about solutions to the problem. I highly recommend this office!

I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone that I know. Dr. Patel took lots of time on my initial visit to answer all of the questions that I had and was very gentle and precise during my procedure. I also had a root canal done by Dr. Finot and it could not have gone any better as far as root canals go. You can tell that he has done countless root canals and the procedure is being conducted flawlessly. Thank you Buford Family Dental!

This place is awesome!! I took my teenage daughter for a root canal, and the dentist was so gentle, she fell asleep during the procedure. It’s a warm and welcoming environment, and everyone makes you feel right at home. I’m so glad I chose this place, and I would recommend Buford Family Dental to anyone.

Dr Patel takes pride in his craft! Everyone was thorough, kind, and no lectures! They took extra care to be sure I was comfortable and understood the treatment plan. I had minimal discomfort on the cleaning and fillings. We took breaks as needed and they were not shy with anesthetic! They were also on point with verifying my insurance so I knew exactly what was covered and what my cost would be. I'm so happy with the work I had done and would gladly recommend Dr. Patel and Sharon (hygienist) to anyone seeking a dentist who genuinely cares about his/her patients!
They truly have no idea the positive impact they have had on my long road to recovery. Thank You!!!

Buford Family Dental is the definition of perfection! I’ve been looking for a dentist for a couple of years now after being in Georgia and I’m glad I found BFD! Dr. Patel and his staff go above and beyond every visit. The office has been upgraded and refreshed since Dr. Patel and his staff have taken over. Very well trained and educated staff in the building. This is my go to Dentist from here on out! Thanks to all the staff at Buford Family Dental!

Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. They were able to get me an appointment same day for a dental emergency. They made sure I knew everything that eased going on. I will definitely return.

I was suffering from severe pain from a tooth that I failed to take care of, to the point that 800mg Ibuprofen wouldn’t even help. I went to another dentist first and came to Buford Family Dental for a second opinion. What separated them from the others was the transparency. They showed me pictures, x-rays and gave me a lot of useful information to soak in prior to deciding on a root canal. The procedure was smooth, pain free and so far, effective. I’ll be returning to have a permanent crown put in place.

I had 3 cavities and the dentist did a great job. Not only was the office clean but I was taken in immediately with no wait time. the dentist is very professional and knows what he's doing. I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. I highly recommend this dentistry.
