Bruxism is a common dental disorder in which an individual uncontrollably clenches and grinds their teeth while asleep. When this occurs, a person can cause serious damage to their teeth and other oral structures. Some issues that are commonly associated with bruxism include:
- Excessive tooth wear
- Jaw discomfort and impairment
- Headaches and migraines
- Tooth Fractures
- Cracked teeth
- Nerve damage
- Gum Recession
One of the best ways to prevent damage from bruxism is to wear a protective night guard while sleeping. Night guards are worn inside the mouth over a person’s teeth, and they are designed to fully protect teeth from the harmful effects of bruxism. They are very comfortable to use, and most patients find that they do not cause any disturbances or disruptions while they are asleep. By wearing a night guard, you will help to ensure that your teeth and oral structures remain healthy.
If you or a loved one is suffering from bruxism and you would like to learn more about night guards, please call us at (813) 333-5277 to schedule an appointment.
