Teeth grinding (bruxism) can be caused not just by stress and anxiety but by sleep disorders, an abnormal bite, or teeth that are missing or crooked. Many people clench or grind their teeth to the point of destructiveness. Most people are completely unaware that they do it, because they often do it while they sleep. A night guard isn’t the most attractive dental appliance in the world, but if you are experiencing frequent headaches, jaw pain, and an angry sleep partner, it’s time to visit us at Flossophy Dental so we can fit you for one.
Once a dentist here at Flossophy Dental decides that you’re a solid candidate for a night guard, they will create one that’s custom-made for your mouth. A professionally made night guard for teeth is composed of soft material and slides over one row of your teeth. Once your dental night guard is in place, you can sleep soundly knowing that even if you do grind your teeth once you’re asleep, your upper and lower teeth will no longer make contact.
If you grind your teeth or wake up with jaw soreness give us a call to discuss your options.
