Don’t Go Back to the Grind Marietta, GA

Don’t Go Back to the Grind

Do you often wake up with a sore jaw or dull headache? These are telltale signs of nighttime teeth grinding, also known as bruxism. Stress or anxiety can often cause you to clench your teeth during the day. However, teeth grinding is most common during sleep and is typically due to an abnormal bite or crooked teeth. Not only are the symptoms of teeth grinding or clenching undesirable, but it can really do some damage to the health of your teeth over time.

Chronic teeth grinding causes teeth to fracture, loosen or even fall out. Nightly grinding habits may eventually wear your teeth down to stumps. If you do not seek help for grinding and teeth clenching, you are setting yourself up for future dental procedures, including bridges, crowns, root canals or implants. When your teeth grinding becomes severe, it can also lead to jaw problems, periodontal issues and even hearing loss.

If your partner tells you that you grind your teeth during the night, do yourself and your loved one a favor and seek help from a dentist. A night time guard from your dentist can effectively prevent your teeth grinding habit. Gilreath Family Dentistry uses the NTI device which is an FDA approved therapy used for both bruxism and migraine prevention. It can be made in a single visit. Treatment for teeth grinding using a custom made night time guard can give you the relaxing night’s sleep you need. No more waking up to sore jaw muscles or a constant headache again!

If your teeth clenching or grinding is caused by an uneven bite, your dentist can recommend corrective treatment to help you. It is also important to make any lifestyle changes that could be stress-inducing. Stress can be a trigger for many individuals who clench their teeth on a daily basis. Whatever your cause of teeth grinding may be, your oral health depends on your decision to seek treatment before serious damage is done to your teeth.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
