Many individuals clench or grind their teeth in their sleep. Not only does this cause damage to teeth, but also it can also lead to headaches, tension in the neck and shoulders, and even snoring or difficulty breathing. A nightguard is a mouthpiece, customized by our dentists, which protects your teeth and jaw while you sleep.
People who grind their teeth are not only annoying to their sleeping companions by also suffer from the effects bruxism has on their health. People who grind their teeth often suffer from jaw pain when they wake up in the morning and may even develop a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). The force exerted by the facial muscles when the teeth grind at night can result in pains that occur during the day. These people may also experience gum recession, sleeping issues, and irritability with sleep companions.
