Night guards become necessary when someone is continuously grinding their teeth. Grinding, or bruxing, is caused when the upper and lower teeth do not fit together properly and slide past each other when chewing. Sometimes this can cause you to subconsciously grind your teeth to eliminate those areas that are not meshing well, especially while you are sleeping. This action can, in turn, cause toothaches, muscle or joint pain. At Charlotte Emergency we often make a splint that fits over the biting surface of your upper and lower teeth, preventing grinding and protecting your teeth to eliminate many of these painful symptoms.
Our promise is quality-driven service. Our experienced, caring staff aims to ensure convenient dental treatment for every patient.
Everyone was very nice from the moment I walked in. The doctor himself made me feel very comfortable and confident that nothing would go wrong. This place was excellent! And pain free! They saved me from having to go to an oral surgeon and he was able to get my tooth out within 10 minutes the SAME DAY I called!
I have terrible anxiety when it comes to dental work but I desperately needed my wisdom tooth removed. I went in scared to death and wound up leaving so excited about the experience! Once they numbed my gums it took maybe 2 minutes to pull it! Everyone was so nice and able to answer my questions and bear with my trepidation!
