Nightguard for Bruxism – Teeth Grinding

Has your sleep partner complained about your teeth grinding, or do you wake with a sore jaw? Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is not just painful and annoying for others, it can damage your teeth and jaw. The direct pressure on your teeth can cause fractures and wear down the enamel. Clenching your jaw can damage the joint and lead to disorders of the jaw. Dr. David Kurtzman can help minimize the damage from bruxism with a customized dental nightguard.

Your jaw muscles are extremely strong, exerting enough pressure to chew tough foods. However, when this pressure is put directly on the teeth, it can be damaging. You can control bruxism while you are awake, making a conscious effort to not clench your jaw due to stress or other factors. However, you cannot stop from clenching or grinding your teeth when you are asleep. As part of our dental care treatments, we offer nightguards designed to help protect your teeth and jaw while you sleep.

Protection from Teeth Grinding

We custom design dental nightguards that fit comfortably and give your teeth protection while you sleep. No more grinding noise for your sleep partner and you can sleep without endangering your oral health. The fit of the nightguard can help relieve pressure on your jaw joint, assisting those with jaw pain from TMJ or other disorders. In addition, those that often snore when they sleep can benefit from wearing a dental nightguard that helps relieve obstructive sleep apnea.

Dr. David Kurtzman offers effective treatments for bruxism with customized dental nightguards. If you want to protect your teeth from damage by teeth grinding, call our office to schedule a consultation and exam. We accept many insurance plans and have flexible payment plans available for our patients’ convenience. Contact our office today.

Did a fantastic job with my teeth. Would recommend to anyone, unless you're on a budget.

Hannah Jones

Gosh these people are great. I’m extremely phobic and these people not only had me relaxed but had me teeth cleaning ever.

RT Morris-Bodner

Absolutely a great dentist and staff. I've had 2 crowns, implant and fillings and everything is always perfect. Dr. Kurtzman makes you feel comfortable, especially if you're nervous at the dentist, and his work is amazing, no problems at all. Highly recommended, you can feel very confident going here.

Lynne Satterfield

Best dentist I've ever had in my 52 years on earth. Staff is very friendly, always accommodating. Dr Kurtzman takes the time to TALK to you which is rare these days. I have to be put under for dental work and he takes his time to do things properly. I highly recommend!!

Tim Bright

Amazing compassion and attention to client care. I've been injured by two previous dentists in the last 20 + years. Caused quite the dental phobia. Dr. Kurtzman and his staff understood this and went out of their way to years worth the dental work in 4 visits. Can not say enough about what a treasure I have found.

Sherie Wilson

I've been going to Dr. Kurtzman for many, many years and consider he and his staff to be exceptional. When I started going to Dr. K in the early 90's, I lived in Marietta. I now live in Roswell, but would not even consider seeking a dentist closer to my home. His practice is worth the drive. Dr. K uses technology well to communicate making the scheduling and keeping of appointments easy - get appointment reminders via text and confirm them this way as well. Dr. K and his wonderful staff keep up on the latest techniques in dentistry and keep constant vigilance on my comfort while visiting their office. Everyone there has great communication skills and listens effectively.
