Dr. Savukinas offers several options for patients affected by bruxism and those who have jaw pain. The first step is to break the teeth grinding habit, which is followed by tooth restoration and repair procedures that help rebuild the worn teeth and improve overall jaw function.
Break the Habit of Teeth Grinding – We can help you break the teeth grinding habit by fitting you with a customized occlusal guard that you wear at night or during high stress situations, such as driving.
Bite Adjustment – Dr. Savukinas may perform one of several procedures or treatments to restore proper functioning of the bite. These may include adjusting the tooth structure (occlusal adjustment), orthodontic treatment with invisible braces, customized tooth replacement with dental implants, veneers, crowns, or bridges.
Cosmetic Options to Restore the Teeth – Dr. Savukinas is an experienced cosmetic dentist and can work to repair both the aesthetic and functional damage caused by teeth grinding. You may be a good candidate for dental crowns, porcelain veneers, or tooth colored bonding once you have overcome the teeth grinding habit.
