The self-destructing habit

Teeth grinding (bruxing) is unconscious nocturnal habit, which is often associated with stress, can deform the shape of your teeth, wear them down, affect your bite, chewing and make your face look prematurely old. Restoring your teeth’s natural looks and protection will rejuvenate your smile and reverse the effects of bruxing.

  • Sore jaw muscles
  • Unusually sensitive teeth

Treatment

Our unique approach

An alternative to plastic night guards

Many dentists recommend wearing a plastic removable night guard on the upper or lower teeth. Mouthguards are intrusive, unhygienic and bulky so patients stop using them.

Our treatment solution involves a replacement of worn-down flat canine tips to re-establish their protective function. This treatment is much more logical than the mouthguard option.
