Stress and trouble sleeping are common issues in every day modern life. Unfortunately, both can cause teeth grinding and clenching, commonly known as “bruxism.” Bruxism can have a significant negative impact on the health of your teeth.
Although bruxism is caused by multiple factors, two of the major reasons are stress and sleep apnea. Over time, bruxism can cause tooth wear, pitting on the biting surface of your teeth, hot and cold sensitivity, and chipping of your teeth’s enamel. The sensitivity caused from grinding can become a constant, daily discomfort. By acting quickly, you can prevent many of these issues.
A nightguard is an easy, effective option in dealing with teeth grinding. After taking a quick and simple mold of your teeth in our office, you’ll be provided with a professional, custom-fitted guard to help protect your teeth!
