Mouth Guard For Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)

Bruxism also known as grinding and/or clenching of your teeth is a very common condition that affects approximately 30 million to 40 million children and adults in the U.S. The primary causes of bruxism are stress and anxiety. Over time, the physical reaction to emotional stressors of grinding the teeth and clenching the jaw becomes habitual. Bruxism can have far-reaching effects on oral health, including tooth wear and the development of TMJ disorder, but a simple solution is to wear a custom-made mouth guard for teeth grinding.

How DO I know if I Grind my Teeth?

If you notice any of the following symptoms, you may be experiencing bruxism:

•  Excessive wear on molars
•  Enamel loss on teeth
•  Rhythmic contractions of the jaw muscles
•  A grinding sound at night
•  Jaw muscles that are tight or painful
•  Long-lasting pain in the face
•  Swelling (occasionally) on the side of your lower jaw caused by clenching

Mouth Guard for Teeth Grinding

The simplest solution for preventing damage to teeth from bruxism is the use of a custom-fitted mouth guard. A mouth guard for teeth grinding is a custom-fitted oral appliance that is worn during sleep and prevents the teeth from scraping against each other. By addressing bruxism early with professional treatment, you can prevent widespread damage to your teeth.
