Many people are afflicted with teeth grinding, or bruxism, which is a bigger problem than you may imagine. Some people do it consciously during the day or unconsciously while they're asleep. Grinding your teeth can damage enamel, wear down teeth, cause jaw pain, or irritate your gums. The noise can also disturb spouses or loved ones if loud enough.

If you grind your teeth, you should consider getting a night guard. A night guard is very similar to the mouth guard worn by athletes, which provides a barrier between your top and bottom teeth while you sleep. Custom fit for comfort and to allow for proper breathing, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth that is sent out to a dental lab. Night guards are very durable and can last for up to 10 years.

There are also things you can do to try to stop teeth grinding. You can train your jaw to relax. Refrain from chewing gum or other objects like pens. You should also avoid alcoholic beverages 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 a consultation with us today.
