How do you cope with stress? If it is by clenching your teeth subconsciously, you could be putting your smile at risk for tooth damage. You may even by grinding your teeth at night and not know it. In some cases, this problem might go away on its own, which is not entirely uncommon among children. But if your nightly teeth grinding shows no sign of stopping, make an appointment with our dentists at North East Dental Arts. Dr. Dina L. Nuhfer, Dr. Rachel B. Fleisig or Dr. Peter Dennis can fit you for a custom night guard in North East and Erie, Pennsylvania. Call 814-725-4700 to start protecting your smile.
