It is estimated that one third of adults suffer from bruxism, more commonly known as sleep teeth grinding. Symptoms include sore and painful jaw, chronic facial pain, headaches and earaches.
Bruxism has a variety of different physical and psychological causes. Many patients aren’t even aware that they grind! A nightguard is the simplest way to help protect your teeth, mean a better sleep, not to mention a saving in future dental bills!
Nightguards are trays that are custom-fit your upper or lower teeth in the jaw area ideally. They are put around the teeth to keep them from grinding, clenching, and other physical injuries or trauma.
While there are over-the-counter nightguards available, we highly recommend custom nightguards. Custom nightguards are created from an exact model of your mouth that we make by taking a mold of your teeth.
Accidents can happen when participating in any athletic activity. Injuries that could occur include chipped or broken teeth, broken crowns, and fractured jaws. For this reason, any athlete- adults and children alike- should be fitted for a mouthguard.
There are many different options of mouthguards available at your local sports store. However, the safest and most effective option is a custom mouthguard. We will make an impression of your teeth to create your custom mouthguard. This allows the mouthguard to cover all your teeth and stay firmly in place for maximum protection.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
If you suspect that you may be clenching in your sleep, let us know and we can check you for signs and symptoms. Even if you don’t have discomfort or pain, our professional team may be able to tell that you clench based on the condition of your mouth.
If you, or someone in your family is involved in a contact sport and don’t have a mouth guard, contact us for a consultation.
