If you have issues with teeth grinding while you sleep, our dentists at Spryfield Dentistry in Halifax can fit you for a custom night mouth guard that will preserve your smile for years to come.
Bruxism (Grinding or Clenching Teeth)
Night mouth guards can help patients who suffer from the symptoms of teeth grinding or clenching while they sleep.
Over time, this grinding and/or clenching (also known as bruxism) can harm both your upper and lower teeth, and cause jaw pain.
How Night Guards Can Help
For patients who have bruxism, a night guard acts as a buffer, preventing contact and the resulting damage.
Patients who wake up with painful jaws in the morning as a result of jaw clenching or TMJ Disorder can find relief by wearing a night guard, which helps protect your teeth as you sleep and eases the symptoms of teeth grinding.
Your dentist can fit you with a custom-made night guard. During a dental appointment, your dentist can take a digital scan of your teeth to ensure a snug and comfortable fit - as well as a tranquil night's rest.
