To protect your teeth from teeth grinding, Dr. Catalina Cruz Johnson may recommend a night guard in Houston, Texas. When a patient clenches their teeth during sleep, the teeth can become worn, fractured, or loose. In extreme cases, tooth loss may occur. TMJ disorders may also occur or worsen as a result of teeth grinding. Night guards are recommended for patients who clench or grind their teeth at night as a way to protect their teeth and bite.
