Dental Night Guards to Prevent Teeth Grinding

There are many people who clench or grind their teeth to the point of destructiveness. Most people are completely unaware that they do it, because it happens while they sleep. To most people, the thought of wearing a night guard is very unappealing and people wonder if they really do need to wear a night guard.

Bruxism is the medical term for forceful clenching and/or grinding of your teeth. The action of bruxism can cause teeth to flatten and if allowed to persist, grinding causes temperature sensitivity, nerve pain, cracks in the teeth, receding gums and eventually lost teeth. Grinding can also cause migraine headaches, and pain in the shoulders, neck and back. Unfortunately, there is no “cure” for bruxism. Medical research has shown the most effective treatment to date to be wearing night guards.

The dental professionals at Red Oak Family Dentistry offer custom made night guards. We begin by making an impression of your teeth so that the mouth guard will be an exact fit for your mouth. Investing in a mouth guard will alleviate the pain caused by grinding and will also prevent you from needing more expensive dental work in the future.
