Night Guards / Anti-Snoring
Bruxism occurs primarily while sleeping. However, some people catch themselves clenching during everyday tasks such as driving, working or exercising. Bruxism may be a response to stress, worn teeth or teeth that are not in proper alignment (malocclusion).
The symptoms of bruxism are:
Jaw pain, earaches and headaches
Fractured or chipped teeth or fillings
Damage to bone that surrounds teeth
Damage to the jaw joint
Tooth sensitivity as the enamel layer is worn down
One of the most effective ways to control grinding is by wearing a nightguard. There are many different types and styles of nightguards – an assessment of your grinding and clenching patterns can help determine the right guard for you.
There are two main reasons people wear night guards; bruxism (teeth grinding) or clenching.
