Stop the Grind

Do you wake up with a stiff, tired jaw? Are your teeth sensitive to cold drinks? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you might be grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep. Grinding of the teeth is a medical condition called bruxism. Over time bruxism will result in the wearing down of your natural tooth enamel.

Bruxism is a title applied to when you grind your teeth. There’s no permanent cure for bruxism, but nightguards help to manage and reduce the dental pain that it causes. In many cases, teeth grinding occurs during sleep, and night guards are the only way of preventing it.

About 1 in 3 people have bruxism and is more prevalent in adolescents. While it does hit men, women, and children of all ages and cultural environments, it declines in the elderly.

Bruxism is not permanent and can come and go throughout life. It’s tough to manage bruxism, and some bruxers grind their teeth with such power that they require reconstructive surgery.

In fact, studies suggested that those who grind and clench their teeth experience up to 80 times the normal wear per day compared with those who do not.

Reduce the risk of wear and tear on your existing healthy teeth by using a nightguard. Clear, thin and removable, a nightguard is custom-made to fit over your upper or lower teeth as you sleep.

In addition to relieving head, neck, jaw joint and shoulder pain, it will protect your existing teeth and your dental restorations. We recommend nightguards for those who have crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures to offset the effects of this often mental habit that occurs during sleep.
