Bruxism and TMD Treatment

Bruxism Treatment | Humble Dentistry

Bruxism affects millions of people in the United States. It means you grind and clench your teeth. During the day, bruxism is a breakable habit, but many patients who suffer from grinding and clenching do so while sleeping, which makes curbing the practice difficult.

When left untreated, bruxism leads to cavities, worn teeth, and even breakage and tooth loss. Fortunately, Dr. Robert Appel offers bruxism help in Humble, TX.

Bruxism Treatment in Humble, TX

At Humble Dentistry, we create custom splints or nightguards to help save your smile. Nightguards create a gentle buffer between your top and bottom teeth to prevent grinding or clenching while asleep.

A member of our team takes impressions of your teeth and creates the best and most effective nightguard for you!

If you are already suffering the fallout from untreated bruxism, Dr. Appel also provides treatments to build up worn teeth and can even offer tooth replacement options for you. He can also help realign your smile if your teeth are no longer lining up properly for a safe and natural bite.

A night guard is a custom oral appliance designed to protect the teeth and minimize the chances of damaging your teeth due to clenching or grinding while sleeping. It is something that is removable and is primarily worn at night. We make several different types of night guards and we work with each patient to determine the best option for them. Night guards can be worn on a few teeth or all the teeth and can be made for the upper jaw, the lower jaw, or both jaws together.
