For patients who clench or grind their teeth, a common treatment our dentist can offer is a night guard. Many people clench or grind their teeth in their sleep when they can’t help it, so an effective way to prevent damage and pain is to place a custom rubbery barrier between the top and bottom teeth during the night. If you clench or grind in your sleep, please call our dental office at 805-962-5000 today to learn more about night guards in Santa Barbara, California, and set up an appointment with Dr. Thomas Blake.
