Dr. Jerry Brown answered

Specializes in Prosthodontics

PPMS -Oral Symptoms: Good day; Primary progressive MS would certainly cause extreme stress with subsequent clenching of the jaw and tooth grinding. Would prescribe soft occlusal guard to relax jaw muscles and occlusal equilibration (bite adjustment) to keep occlusal scheme even.
