Nightguard for Bruxism – Teeth Grinding
Have you been awakened by the nudging of your sleep partner because you were grinding your teeth? Bruxism, or teeth grinding, is not just annoying for those within earshot during sleep hours, it could be damaging your teeth. If you grind your teeth or clench your jaw while sleeping, you may be causing serious dental problems. At Clover Smile Studio, our general dentistry services include creating a customized dental nightguard to protect your teeth from bruxism and help everyone get a restful night’s sleep.
Your jaw is a powerful mechanism, able to use hundreds of pounds of pressure for effective chewing. When you have bruxism, you are putting this pressure directly on your teeth. This can cause fractures in the teeth, and the shifting while grinding can wear down tooth enamel. This can lead to an uneven bite, causing jaw joint disorders and jaw pain. It can also put your teeth in jeopardy of sensitivity, decay and infection. While you may not be able to control teeth grinding while you are sleeping, you can protect your smile with a dental nightguard.
Comfortable Protection from Teeth Grinding
We design customized dental nightguards that are comfortable to wear when you sleep. These safe plastic guards are designed to fit your teeth perfectly, making them comfortable and effective. Unlike over-the-counter products, our nightguards are professionally designed, ensuring they will not shift or move. They are also slimmer, so you quickly adjust to wearing the device when you sleep. They protect your teeth and can alleviate jaw pain. Plus, some people also notice they snore less when wearing a nightguard.
If you suffer from bruxism, do not let it ruin your healthy smile. Contact Clover Smile Studio today to schedule a consultation to be fitted for a customized dental nightguard to protect your dental health.
