There are now many different types of night guards. We will decide together what material is best for you.
Botox can be strategically placed in the muscles you use when you clench or grind your teeth. The botox decreases the force your muscles can exert, putting less force on your temporo-mandibular joint and teeth! This is a great treatment option for those who feel like they are day time clenchers or grinders or someone with severe grinding habits/symptoms.
