Do you clench and grind your teeth? Maybe you find yourself waking up with jaw pain.
Dr. James White offers teeth grinding treatment in Las Vegas, Nevada. Teeth clenching or grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common dental problem that affects millions of Americans. Bruxism can be caused by stress, anxiety, crooked teeth, or a misaligned bite. Patients may clench or grind their teeth at night or during stressful situations which can result in worn down or even broken teeth. Dr. White and his professional dental team are dedicated to finding the right solution to common and complex dental problems. They work one-on-one with patients to personalize their care for a comfortable and long-lasting end result.
Common Signs of Bruxism

- Jaw pain
- Chronic headaches

- Muscle tenderness
- Worn teeth
- Tooth sensitivity
Do any of these conditions sound familiar to you? Call Dr. White and his staff at 702- 213-7220 to learn about your treatment options. Dr. White will take your budget, goals, and oral health into consideration to choose the right solution for you.
Mild cases of bruxism can be treated with tongue exercises and learning how to properly align the tongue, teeth, and lips. However, for patients with mild to moderate cases of bruxism, Dr. White offers treatment with oral appliances. Oral appliances act like mouth guards and prevent teeth from grinding together. They also take the pressure off of the jaw and allow teeth to properly align. After receiving treatment with oral appliances, some patients may need restorative treatment. If a patient’s teeth have become worn down or damaged due to bruxism, they can receive dental crowns to protect teeth from further wear and tear.
