Do You Grind Your Teeth at Night?

Do you often wake up with pain in your facial region (sore jaw, headache) and teeth? Then you may be suffering from a condition called Bruxism (teeth grinding).  Teeth grinding leads to damage such as cracks, factures and even tooth erosion.  Custom nightguard is a very effective solution for teeth grinding.

Custom Mouthguards are the Best Solution for Nightly Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding is a very common condition that affects approximately 40 million children and adults in the U.S.  Teeth grinding can cause serious damage such as cracks, factures and even tooth erosion.  The earlier we catch the damage, the better because the damage that teeth grinding can cause will require expensive repair work down the road!

Custom fit night guard are made using higher quality material in a special laboratory from an impression of your mouth carefully taken by a dental professional. These will provide superior fit and will be more comfortable to wear. You may be tempted to purchase an over-the-counter version due to cost reasons. This type of night guard is not custom-fit to your mouth; therefore, it could be uncomfortable and can make it impossible to get a good night’s sleep!

Teeth Grinding Symptoms

  • Sore Jaw caused by muscles that are tight or painful
  • Occasional swelling on your lower jaw caused by clenching
  • Lasting pain in the face
  • A grinding sound at night

Treatment Options

  • The most common and effective solution for teeth grinding is a night guard which can eliminate the pain and damage caused to your teeth.
  • Jaw or teeth alignment – Teeth that are out of alignment can contribute to teeth grinding. This can be fixed by corrective measures such as braces.
  • Stress prevention – One of the main causes of teeth grinding is anxiety. We might advise you to meditate at home for relaxation, or in some cases professional counseling, to get you to relax and stop clenching your jaw.
