If your child grinds his or her teeth at night, our pediatric dentists may recommend a night guard to help protect their teeth. Bruxism (teeth grinding) can cause significant damage to the teeth, including damage to the roots of the teeth. Night guards prevent that damage from occurring so that your child can continue to enjoy a healthy smile. To make an appointment for your child with Dr. Pang, Dr. Chen, Dr. Kishiyama Lam and Dr. Mo to learn more about the benefits of night guards in San Francisco, California, call OPDSF Pediatric Dentistry at 415-692-6670.
