It’s estimated that close to 20% of adults suffer from the negative effects of grinding and clenching their teeth, often called bruxing. The main reason people clench and grind their teeth is due to stress. Clenching and grinding not only causes excessive wear on your teeth, but the activity can also cause your facial and neck muscles to become sore.
At Back Bay Dental Care, our experienced dentist can fit you with night guards — plastic mouthpieces that fit over your upper and lower teeth — to lessen the damaging effects of clenching or grinding your teeth. Night guards can also correct your bite by placing your teeth in their correct position.

If you, or your kids play sports, you need a properly fitted sports guard to protect against damage to your teeth and dental work. After all, a single blow to your mouth can easily cause tooth fracture, tooth dislodgement, or damage to your crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, or dental implants.
All it takes to protect your teeth is one simple, painless visit. There are no needles, no drugs, no tools in your mouth. Even better, no lab work or X-rays are required. Over the years, the Back Bay Dental Care dentist team have protected the smiles for most of the athletes in the Boston area. Let us do the same for you.
