Teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) can be a difficult problem for children and adults who deal with daily stress, especially because the habit is often unconscious and occurs during sleep. If your teeth are showing signs of wear or facial pain is becoming more and more common, please don’t hesitate to visit our dental office. Our team offers customized night guards which are comfortable to wear at night and can protect your smile from the consequences of bruxism.
Did you know that an estimated 8% of people clench or grind their teeth while they sleep? It’s true. Even more alarming is the fact that most don’t even know they are doing it.
If you suspect that you’re grinding your teeth at night, there is a way to protect your smile. You can get a night guard.
A night guard is a removable dental appliance that is similar to an athletic mouth guard. It provides a barrier between your top and bottom teeth to protect them from grinding while you sleep, which in turn shields your teeth from wear, gum irritation, enamel damage, and jaw pain. Furthermore, night guards are custom made to ensure comfort and safety so that you can sleep more soundly than ever before.
