Teeth grinding, referred to as bruxism, affects many people and can destroy the health of their smile. If you suffer from bruxism, you may find yourself clenching your jaw when you are stressed and may grind your teeth when you are sleeping. This can cause jaw joint stress and tooth damage that can affect your oral and overall health. Our team can create a nightguard that is customized for your mouth to protect your teeth and jaw from injury.
You can curb clenching your jaw when you are awake, but there is not much you can do to stop nocturnal teeth grinding. The amount of pressure this can put on your teeth and jaw is substantial. Your jaw muscles can exert hundreds of pounds of pressure, causing tooth cracks, jaw joint disorders and other oral health problems. The best dental treatment is to protect your teeth and jaw with a nightguard.
Stop Teeth Grinding While You Sleep
At Horizon Dental Care, we can create a nightguard that will protect your teeth while you sleep. If you try to grind your teeth, there will be a cushion between your upper and lower teeth, protecting them from damage. Nightguards can also help reduce stress on the jaw. If you have had symptoms of TMJ/TMD (jaw joint disorder), a nightguard can also relieve the pain and discomfort that are associated with this issue.
It is important to have a nightguard that is customized for your teeth and mouth. This will offer the best protection and ensure that you are comfortable for a good night’s rest. Our team will make sure you get a perfect fit for your nightguard.
