If you frequently wake up with jaw pain, earaches, or headaches, you may have a condition known as bruxism that compels you to grind and clench your teeth while you sleep. Aside from being uncomfortable, bruxism can result in severe dental problems. For patients who suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding) in Kennesaw, Georgia, our dentist may recommend night guards to protect the teeth from harmful pressure and friction. To request a night guard, contact our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Kirshenbaum.
