Testimonials

  • Myself and my family have been going to Dr. Woodson for 10 years now. I had bad experiences as a child with dentistry, I was fearful to go back but Dr. Woodson made it feel very personal like you’re the only patient he has to care about. With kids he’s fantastic. I’d recommend him for anybody.

  • Dr. Woodson has definitely restored my faith in dentistry. I have always had wonderful experiences there; the office staff is great and he is one of the most gentle, funniest and friendliest people I know. He makes each experience very comfortable,there is very little post procedure pain. It’s as pleasant as it can be. I highly recommend him for anyone, child and/or adult and I do recommend all my friends and family. In fact my entire family sees Dr Woodson.

  • My family and I have been going to Dr. Woodson for over 17 years. He’s wonderful, caring and very gentle. My kids used to give me a hard time when they had to go to a dentist – but that was all over when we found Dr. Woodson – we never had a problem again. They are all grown now and they still go to him. He is very very entertaining – so are his staff. It’s a very warm and friendly atmosphere. They go out of their way to make appointments around your work schedule. I would recommend him to anyone – he’s been very good to me and my family.

What is Bruxism/Grinding?

Bruxism is the act of consciously or unconsciously clenching or grinding your teeth either during the day or while you sleep. Bruxism is considered both a medical and a dental problem. This is because it affects both the teeth and all of the structure near it, including the head.

Effects of Bruxism

Teeth grinding, although it is not a major health issue, can bring about problems like mouth, jaw, and face problems, broken dentures, missing teeth, and many others. It is very important for adults to consult a dentist so that their teeth grinding habit is addressed before any further problems develop.

People grind their teeth for a variety of reasons. Doctors believe that it is because of stress. Dentists say that it happens because one’s teeth are not properly aligned with each other. Whatever the cause treatment should not be delayed.

Indications of Bruxism

  • Intense clenching of teeth enough to wake up somebody
  • Flattened, worn down, and chipped teeth
  • Worn teeth enamel
  • Sensitive teeth (extensive pain in their gums when their teeth are subjected to something very cold or very hot)
  • Pain and tightness in the jaws and its muscles
  • Instances of earaches (when the jaws move constantly and involuntarily the muscle that connects to the ear suffers as well)
  • Headaches
  • Facial pain
  • Damaged cheek tissue

Treatment for Bruxism

You will be fitted by our dentist with custom Mouth Guards to prevent you from grinding and clenching your teeth. Night mouth guards are bite pads that are worn at night as you sleep. These guards are made of high-grade plastic and should fit the teeth or mouth perfectly. This device keeps the upper teeth from grinding with the lower teeth, offering an instant solution to teeth clenching problems.
