Nightguards For Teeth Grinding
If you grind your teeth or experience jaw pain or tooth sensitivity, you may benefit from the use of a custom-fitted nightguard. Chronic conditions such as teeth grinding wear down your teeth over time and can lead to tooth sensitivity, an infected tooth or require restorative dental treatments such as a dental crown or bridge. If you have noticed increased tooth sensitivity or a change in the size or appearance of your teeth, make an appointment with your local dentist to discover, prevent or teeth grinding symptoms. Remember, the best form of dental treatment is often preventive care!
If you have been known to keep the household awake by snoring at night or gasping awake, you may be displaying symptoms of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea, or obstructive sleep apnea, is an often chronic condition that occurs when you stop breathing during your sleep, causing you to wake up frequently at night, snore, or discover a dry mouth or bad breath in the morning.
Because sleep apnea has been linked to systemic health problems throughout the body (such as high blood pressure or diabetes) it is recommended that you seek medical help if you discover symptoms. Your dentist for sleep apnea may recommend wearing a custom night guard to reposition the alignment of your bite and keep your airways open while you sleep.
