Greenwood Village Teeth Grinding Dentist

Treat and prevent the effects of teeth grinding

Do you grind your teeth while you sleep or during the day?

Chronic tooth grinding and clenching (bruxism) affects about 13% of adults and is also prevalent in children and teens. If you’ve noticed soreness in your jaw or neck, dull headaches, tooth pain or sensitivity, or worn enamel, you may be grinding your teeth and clenching your jaw while you sleep or absentmindedly while you’re awake.

At Village Dental, we provide patient-centered, advanced dental treatments and solutions to people of all ages and walks of life. If you think you may have bruxism, our Greenwood Village teeth-grinding dentists can diagnose the problem and recommend effective treatments to help alleviate the symptoms and restore your oral health. Book online now or call us at (303) 220-7662 to get started.

What are the symptoms of teeth grinding?

While grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw occasionally is normal and unlikely to cause long-term problems, chronic teeth grinding can be a source of several health problems. Many people dealing with the effects of bruxism are unaware of grinding their teeth until major symptoms begin to appear.

Some of the most common symptoms of teeth grinding include:

  • NNeck and jaw pain.
  • NWeakened enamel
  • NChanges in tooth shape
  • NBroken teeth
  • NHeadaches
  • NMigraines
  • NTMJ disorders
  • NTrouble sleeping
If you’re suffering from any of these issues, we can help you determine if teeth grinding is the cause and develop an effective treatment and prevention plan.

Treatments for teeth grinding

Night Guards

If you grind your teeth during sleep, we can make you a custom night guard to alleviate bruxism and treat and prevent negative symptoms. Our night guards are designed to be resistant yet flexible so you can be perfectly comfortable while you sleep. Learn more.


Botox is an effective treatment for bruxism and migraine headaches. By injecting Botox into the clenching muscles (temporalis muscle and the masseter muscles), we can lessen the severity of the clenching and grinding you normally experience. This in turn decreases the incidents of headaches and migraines. Learn more.


Crowns are protective dental replacements usually made out of ceramic or porcelain that are placed over the damaged tooth. They look just like your natural teeth and are an excellent treatment option for damage caused by excessive grinding. Learn more.
