Protecting your teeth and gums.
With an estimated prevalence rate among adults between 8% to 31.4%, you may grind your teeth unconsciously at night.
Are your teeth grinding (bruxism) or clenching while you sleep?
Do your teeth, jaw and gums suffer from injury from teeth grinding and during sports?
Do you feel uncomfortable with jaw pain, tooth damage, or headache caused by your teeth grinding?
Maybe it's time you use a bite guard.
A bite guard or mouth guard is a dental device that are worn over teeth to help protect your teeth from injury caused by playing sports, or by clenching or grinding. Some bite guards are specifically designed to help reduce snoring and relieve obstructive sleep apnea.
Many dentists and medical providers recommend the use of bite guards or mouthguards at night to help limit overnight grinding and clenching. These protective devices cover your teeth to shield them against potential damage.
Teeth grinding can be habitual or maybe caused by emotion such as stress, anxiety, tension or frustration.
It can also be caused by abnormal bite, missing or crooked teeth.
It can be caused by a sleep disorder, like sleep apnea.
Or it can be a combination of physical, psychological and genetic factors.
Occasional teeth grinding (bruxism) does not usually cause harm. But when teeth grinding occurs on a regular basis, the teeth can be damaged and cause other oral health complications.
In some cases, chronic or severe teeth grinding can result in:
fractures or extractions
loss of teeth
enamel damage to teeth
change the appearance of your face
