Night guards are available for patients who grind their teeth (bruxism). It evens out the pressure and creates a barrier between your upper and lower teeth to protect them from grinding. Our custom made night guards will protect your teeth and keep them safe as you sleep. Night guards can improve your sleep, reduce headaches and jaw joint problems and prevent sensitivity on your teeth.
Signs & Symptoms
If you notice any of the following symptoms, you may be experiencing bruxism:
- Rhythmic contractions of the jaw muscles
- A grinding sound at night
- Jaw muscles that are tight or painful
- Long-lasting pain in the face
- Swelling (occasionally) on the side of your lower jaw caused by clenching2
The underlying cause of your teeth grinding may be stress or anxiety.
If your teeth grinding is stress-related, it’s important to try to relax and get a good night’s sleep. There are a number of things you can try to help you wind down before you go to bed, including:
- deep breathing
- having a bath
- listening to music
