Most people who experience bruxism only grind their teeth at night. Identifying bruxism before the damage is done may be achieved in several ways. Regular visits to the dentist for preventative dental care result in the wear and tear to teeth being picked up during a comprehensive exam. A partner or spouse will mention that you grind your teeth, or you may wake up with a pain in your jaw.

Although it is possible to purchase nightguards over the counter for bruxism, these devices are not tailored to your specific needs. In fact, low quality or badly designed nightguards can result in additional oral health problems. At Tejal A. Kakade, DMD, MAGD, PC, we provide a custom-made nightguard that is modeled after the shape of your teeth. The device is designed to prevent grinding and protect your teeth while you sleep.

Prevent Worn Down Teeth

Grinding your teeth will inevitably lead to wearing down the enamel and the underlying structure. Each person who suffers from bruxism is impacted in different ways, which is why at Tejal A. Kakade, DMD, MAGD, PC, personalized treatment is ideally suited to addressing the problem. Wear facets may present on anterior teeth, posterior teeth or both. How your teeth are impacted by bruxism will depend on the grinding motion.

Wear can be repaired to an extent, but that will not prevent you from grinding your teeth. Tejal A. Kakade, DMD, MAGD, PC, aims to get to the root of the problem as well as providing treatment that is effective and long-lasting. For dentistry with a difference, trust in the expertise of Dr. Tejal and our team.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
