Is grinding my teeth normal?

While teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is very common among adults, it can cause serious damage to your teeth and jaw joints. If you wake up with sore muscles or you have noticed that you clench or grind your teeth, we can make a night guard to help protect your teeth.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
COVID-19 UPDATE: From Friday 6th August 2020 the provision of dental treatment has been limited to URGENT care only.  We only a phone call away (even if we are not at the practice) and can advise you if your concern can wait until it's safer or if we need to see you now. At ALL times, we take infection control very seriously.  Our additional precautions, on top of our usual high standards are aimed at minimising the risk of infection for you, your family and our staff.  Rest assured that we continue to provide you with great care in a clean and safe environment.
