Unconscious teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, affects an estimated 8% of all people.
Unfortunately, this grinding and clenching of teeth most often occur during sleep, and most sufferers don’t even know that it is happening.
To help determine whether or not bruxism is affecting you, ask yourself if you experience the following symptoms:
If any of these symptoms apply to you, then you may be grinding your teeth at night. While there is no cure for bruxism, there is a way to protect your smile. Your dentist can provide you with a night guard.
The night guard received from your dentist is a removable dental appliance that is similar to an athletic mouth guard. Unlike athletic mouth guards, however, your mouth guard for bruxism is custom made at the dentist’s office in order to ensure comfort and safety. By providing a barrier between your top and bottom teeth, it protects your smile from grinding while you sleep.
If you suspect that you may have issues with teeth grinding while you sleep, our custom-fit night guards can help. Additionally, the experienced dentists at Smile Perfection Dental & Implant will discuss supplemental ways to help reduce or eliminate bruxism. Contact Smile Perfection Dental & Implant today to request your appointment today and end your nighttime teeth grinding.
