Night Guards

Unconscious teeth grinding, also known Bruxism, affects an estimated 8% of all people. Unfortunately, this grinding and clenching of teeth most often occurs during sleep and most sufferers don’t even know that it is happening.

Schedule an Appointment

To help determine whether or not bruxism is affecting you, ask yourself if you experience the following symptoms:

  • Jaw pain
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Mouth sores
  • Inflamed gums
  • Insomnia
  • Earaches
  • Constant headaches ranging from dull to severe migraine
  • Neck or shoulder pain

If any of these symptoms apply to you, then you may be grinding your teeth at night. While there is now cure for bruxism, there is a way to protect your smile. Your dentist can provide you with a night guard.

Getting a Night Guard

The night guard received from your dentist is a removable dental appliance that is similar to an athletic mouth guard. Unlike athletic mouth guards, however, your mouth guard for bruxism is custom made at the dentist’s office in order to ensure comfort and safety. By providing a barrier between your top and bottom teeth, it protects your smile from grinding while you sleep.

If you suspect that you may have issues with teeth grinding while you sleep, our custom fit night guards can help. Additionally, the experienced dentists at Family & Implant Dentistry of Boynton Beach will discuss supplemental ways to help reduce or eliminate bruxism.
