Dr. John Says...

Grinding gears

Escape from the nightly grind

Do you grind your teeth at night? Do you have chronic pain in your jaw or neck muscles? You may be suffering from a common problem called "traumatic occlusion." Traumatic occlusion is a fancy way of saying your upper and lower jaw are not aligned properly — they’re not in harmony. The most common reason for this is misaligned teeth, and two of the most effective treatments are Equilibration and Invisalign. Read more about these procedures in our What We Do section.
