Custom-Fit Bruxism Nightguards To Protect Your Teeth While You Dream
What Is bruxism?
Bruxism is an interesting problem experienced by many people at some point in their lives, though they may not be aware of it. It is characterized by an unconscious grinding or clenching of the teeth that is often loud enough to be heard across the room. In fact, it can even disrupt a partner’s sleep!
Bruxism is probably stress-related and people can experience it with varying frequency. Some people will grind their teeth nightly while others may only do it on occasion. It only becomes a problem in people who are frequent offenders.
Unfortunately, grinding your teeth like this regularly can cause damage to the teeth or uneven wear over time. It can even fracture a tooth or tooth restoration.
How do you know you have bruxism?
You may experience a toothache or pain in the face or jaw. Your partner might complain about the strange sounds you make at night or you might even wake yourself up.
Though there isn’t a cure for bruxism, nightguards can help avoid the problems caused by the condition. A properly fitted nightguard will protect your teeth from breaking and wear, alleviate the pain and soreness in your jaw, and allow you (and your partner) to sleep peacefully at night.
