Stanley Dentistry offers bruxism therapy to help patients who suffer from pain in their jaw. Bruxism is a subconscious process that is characterized by the grinding of teeth and typically includes the clenching of the jaw. We offer several options, including therapy or appliances, to alleviate problems associated with bruxism.
