Mouthguards at Life Style Dentistry

Many people are afflicted with bruxism, or teeth grinding. Some people may do this consciously during the day, but it is a larger problem at night while you are asleep. Grinding your teeth can damage enamel, wear down teeth, cause jaw pain, or irritate your gums. The noise from teeth grinding can also disturb your spouse’s sleep if loud enough.

Comfortable, Protective Appliances

If you grind your teeth you should consider a night guard. The protective appliance, which is smaller and sleeker than a mouthguard, provides a barrier between your top and bottom teeth while you sleep. All protective appliances are custom fitted for comfort and to allow for proper breathing. At Life Style Dentistry we will use the iTero digital scanner to scan your teeth instead of taking an impression and have the protective appliance created by a dental lab. Protective appliances are very durable and can be used for up to 10 years.

Stopping Teeth Grinding Naturally

There are also some things that you can do to try to stop teeth grinding. You can train your jaw to be free and easy rather than clenched. Refrain from chewing gum or on other objects like pens. You should also avoid alcoholic drinks and drinks with caffeine, as these can increase the likelihood you will grind your teeth. If you suspect you might be grinding your teeth at night set up an appointment with us today.
