Do You Have Teeth to Grind?

Do you grind or clench your teeth? These bad habits can affect your bite, wear down your teeth, and give you a worn-out smile, not to mention they’re often the root of headaches and neck and jaw pain.

Unconscious habits like teeth-grinding can cause big problems. But a new smile can be designed to better support your bite and reduce such pressure on your teeth and gums.

If you’ve been told by a dentist that any sort of bite correction will take multiple visits to the dentist, you need to know that time estimate can be drastically reduced (take a look at our patient, Rick). No one wants dental work to drag on indefinitely.

Whether you’re suffering from TMJ or bite problems, at Smile Texas we use computer-based bite correcting technology and dental CT X-ray imaging to determine your best solution – for many patients, this involves cosmetic dentistry in the way of porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns. Also, sedation dentistry allows us to complete multiple procedures at once, and it will put you at ease so all you have to do is wake up with a brand new pain-free smile.
