Preventative Dental Care When You Need It
For anyone who grinds his or her teeth at night, there are possible options for at-home treatment. Grinding teeth can wear down the tooth enamel and cause jaw pain. Since the teeth grinding occurs at night, it can be difficult for the individual to prevent it without extra assistance. We can determine your specific needs and provide you with the necessary tool to prevent the teeth from grinding against each other at night; this tool is known as a night guard.
Common signs a night guard is necessary
One common sign of grinding teeth at night or a family member notices it at night. Soreness is another common sign of teeth grinding is a constant soreness in the teeth and jaw. Teeth grinding causes damage to the teeth enamel. Grinding teeth wears down the tooth enamel and can also lead to decay, tooth sensitivities, exposed nerves, and ultimately tooth loss. In some cases, grinding the teeth may even cause gum recession and migraines. Visiting a night guard dentist can prevent all of these problems.
A night guard will save you money in the long run
Prolonged decay and tooth damage from grinding the teeth will cause more money spent on complex procedures to repair the damage. However, investing in a night guard can save patients more money and save the health of their teeth. To avoid this financial burden in the future, visit our office to prevent these problems and the costs associated with fixing them. Make a positive investment by getting a night guard before incurring the need for more costly procedures.
A night guard will ease oral discomfort
For anyone currently experiencing headaches, facial discomfort, jaw pain or even insomnia, teeth grinding may be the cause. A night guard will cover the sensitive tooth nerves, preventing the upper and lower teeth from touching. With a night guard, a patient will wake up refreshed and more relaxed than before. After night guards, a patient will also notice a big difference in how sensitive the teeth and jaw are. A night guard will protect the sensitive teeth and preserve the enamel.
The night guard will be a custom fit
Many people avoid getting night guards since they imagine them as a large, awkward and uncomfortable mouth guard. Fortunately, night guards are much less noticeable and much more attractive than people may realize. We will fit the night guard specifically to the patient's teeth so it will not feel out of place and will blend in with your natural teeth. Patients are able to wear the night guard while sleeping and receive a good night's sleep on a regular basis.
