Protection While You Sleep
Grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw at night can lead to tooth damage, jaw discomfort and headaches.
A mouth guard serves as protection, preventing potential damage to your teeth from jaw clenching or teeth grinding. It can also help relieve the pain associated with clenching or grinding.
At Dentistry On GreenLane, our goal is to help patients safeguard their teeth during sleep and avoid any unnecessary oral health issues.
If you are experiencing symptoms like a sore jaw, headaches or tooth sensitivity after sleeping, it’s a good idea to talk with your dentist about the possibility of using a mouth guard.
Why do some people grind their teeth or clench their jaws at night?
There are numerous causes of bruxism. Stress and anxiety, for example, can be causes. People may unconsciously grind their teeth or clench their jaws as a way to cope with these emotions. Additionally, certain lifestyle habits, such as smoking or excessive alcohol consumption, may also contribute.
Other potential causes include misaligned teeth or an abnormal bite, which can put extra pressure on the jaw. Even some sleep disorders have been linked to grinding and clenching.
Whatever the reason, seeking professional help from a dentist is important to prevent further damage and improve overall oral health.
