Bruxism is a condition in which someone grinds or clenches their teeth at night. Since this happens while they sleep, they may have no idea they are doing it until they start to notice pain in their jaws or damage to their teeth. During your next visit to Summit Dental, talk to our dentist, Dr. Kendal Trujillo, to see if you could use a night guard in Ruidoso, New Mexico, to protect your teeth while you sleep. Call 575-257-5179 to schedule an appointment.
