Get A Good Night’s Sleep With Bruxism Nightguards
If you grind your teeth at night, you may suffer from bruxism. We proudly offer treatment options at Philadelphia Dental Smiles in Philadelphia to help you stop grinding your teeth and get more restful sleep.
What is bruxism?
Bruxism is a condition in which you involuntarily grind and clench your teeth while you sleep. Grinding your teeth can have serious consequences on your dental health. Over time, your teeth will become worn down and sensitive. This is due to the enamel being ground away. As your teeth are weakened, they become more vulnerable to decay and damage.
What are the symptoms of bruxism?
The signs of teeth grinding can sometimes be easy to miss, as the condition occurs while you sleep. It is important to familiarize yourself with the symptoms of bruxism which can include dull headaches in the morning that sometimes persist throughout the day, sore jaws when you wake up, tenderness of the teeth and gums, enamel erosion, and facial pain.
How do bruxism nightguards work?
Getting bruxism under control is essential for your oral health. While night grinding can be difficult to stop altogether, a nightguard can drastically reduce the effects. Using our dental impression technology, Philadelphia Dental Smiles creates custom nightguards that fit over your teeth and create a barrier. This barrier is a softer, less abrasive surface that does not grind your teeth. It also helps lessen the impact and tension of clenching.
If you think you suffer from the effects of bruxism, give us a call today and book your consultation. At Philadelphia Dental Smiles, we want to ensure you get the good night’s rest you deserve so you can wake up refreshed and ready to face the world.
