Night Guards

Millions of people suffer from bruxism, a condition that causes a person to uncontrollably clench and grind their teeth while they are asleep. When this happens, it can cause major damage to teeth and their other oral structures. Bruxism can be a result of many factors, such as:

  • Certain sleep disorders
  • Certain medications
  • Anxiety or stress
  • Certain medical conditions

No matter what the cause, bruxism is a serious issue, and anyone who suffers from the condition should take precautions against dental damage. If bruxism is left untreated, some of the problems that can occur include:

  • Excessive tooth wear
  • Jaw discomfort and injury
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Tooth fractures
  • Cracked teeth
  • Nerve damage
  • Gum line recession

Perhaps the most effective method for preventing damage from bruxism is to wear a protective mouth guard inside the mouth while sleeping. These devices are worn over a person’s teeth, and they work to protect the teeth from any sort of damage that may be caused by clenching and grinding. Night guards feel very comfortable inside the mouth, and most people find that they do not cause any disruptions or disturbances while they are asleep.

If you would like to learn more about night guards and how they can protect your teeth from injury, please call us at (209) 543-0555 to schedule an appointment.
