Night Guards

night guard

Teeth grinding and clenching is pretty common and can be painful and destructive to teeth. Luckily, one way to prevent this is with the use of night guards! Night guards can help anyone who clenches and grinds their teeth while sleeping.

Most cases of teeth grinding/clenching can easily be treated by wearing a night guard while you sleep. They work by putting a barrier between your teeth. When you clench your jaw, the night guard helps to lighten the tension and give cushion to the muscles in the jaw. This cushioning not only helps to prevent face and jaw pain, but also protects the enamel of your teeth.

Occasional teeth grinding may not cause any real concerns, but long-term, consistent grinding/clenching can lead to broken teeth, loss of tooth enamel, and in severe cases, loss of teeth.

The exact cause is unknown, but it’s believed that stress and anxiety play the biggest role. Other causes may also be alcohol use, cigarettes, caffeine, sleep apnea, snoring, an abnormal bite, and crooked teeth.
