November is TMJ Awareness Month, so we thought it was the perfect time to share Vivian’s story with you.

Among the many unpleasant consequences of problems with the jaw joint, or TMJ, is a teeth grinding habit. It’s often associated with TMJ disorder and tends to be the body’s involuntary response to stress.

Vivian’s teeth grinding was so bad, it wore down and even shifted her teeth to the point where she was too self-conscious to smile. Teeth grinding also contributed to other dental problems that led to multiple restorative treatments to get her bright, confident smile back.

Fortunately, Vivian had our skilled, caring team in charge of her smile transformation, so her story has a happy ending. But we thought it was important to let you hear from someone who knows firsthand what teeth grinding can do to impact your dental health!
