Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, can damage your teeth and impair the function of your jaw if left unaddressed.
At his offices in Garland and Logan, UT, oral surgeon Gregory E. Anderson diagnoses and treats bruxism.
If you or someone in your family regularly experiences involuntary teeth grinding, schedule a consultation with Dr. Anderson today...
Non-Surgical Treatment for Bruxism
Non-surgical solutions can usually alleviate the symptoms of bruxism. For example, if you often grind your teeth or clench your jaw during the day, we may recommend certain exercises that will train your jaw muscles to behave differently.
Patients with sleep bruxism are often provided with custom-made dental appliances to wear during the night. These nightguards prevent the teeth from grinding, protecting the teeth and alleviating the pressure on the TMJ.
If Dr. Anderson diagnoses you with bruxism during an appointment at one of our offices in Logan or Garland, he will most likely recommend that you try oral appliance therapy before any other solution.
A Simple Solution
Surgical Treatment for Bruxism
If bruxism has caused significant damage to your jaw muscles, surgery may be recommended. During corrective jaw surgery, Dr. Anderson can alter the position of your jaws and repair joints that have been harmed by clenching.

- Your comfort matters to Dr. Anderson. We offer several forms of sedation to our patients, including intravenous (IV) sedation, oral conscious sedation, and nitrous oxide.

Real 5-Star Reviews
Dr. Gregory and his wife are great people. Saw him after hours for a locked jaw and he went above and beyond making me feel comfortable and making sure I understood what caused it/ how to help it. Very friendly, very kind, very admirable. Glad I met him!View On Google
The staff here are incredible. As far as health coverage is concerned, they go above and beyond to get your procedure approved. Sandra was literally on the phone with my insurance company for three straight hours. She gets it done! It's refreshing to see a medical office work so hard on behalf of their clients. I would never have been able to afford this surgery out-of-pocket. If I could give six stars, I would.View On Google
