Although teeth grinding is typically the result of stress in adults, the same is not always true with kids. If your child’s teeth grinding is not due to stress, other possible causes include inflammation in the mouth, inner ear pressure, allergies, and misaligned teeth. The excellent news is that, since your child’s teeth and jaws change and grow so quickly, teeth grinding is not typically a harmful habit that needs treatment; they may even outgrow it by adolescence.

Nevertheless, if extreme wear of the teeth persists, we might suggest your kid wear a night-guard. If you’re concerned about your child’s teeth grinding, ask us about the prospective causes and, if needed, the possible solutions.

Call our New Bremen Smiles dental practice to schedule an appointment for a custom-made nightguard to solve your teeth grinding issue.

Bridge placement

Dental bridges and crowns can last for many years, as they are made of gold, alloys, porcelain, or mixes of these materials.

Getting a bridge is also a multiple-step procedure. Instead of making a mold of simply one tooth to fit a crown, Dr. Geoffrey Froning files down and develops molds of 2 or more natural teeth surrounding a missing out on tooth.

He employs the assistance of a cosmetic surgeon to place an oral implant to secure your bridge in location and offers you temporary crowns to wear while a dental lab creates your permanent bridge. During a subsequent visit, he seals crowns to surrounding teeth and protects your bridge in place.

How should I care for crowns and bridges?

Caring for crowns and bridges are as easy as caring for your natural teeth. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits can all help prolong the life of your teeth and dental implants.
