Most people who clench their jaws and grind their teeth may be unaware that they do so.
However, these are only symptoms of broader issues that, if not treated, can have major consequences not only for your dental health, but also your entire sense of well-being.
Clenching of jaws and grinding of teeth are often symptoms of a disorder known as Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD). Patients who visit us at Shields Dental & Implant Clinic Limerick are professionally assessed by dentists who are highly trained and experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of TMD.
The Shields brothers hold postgraduate qualifications in occlusal studies and are associated with the British Society of Occlusal Studies.
