Individuals who grind their teeth are prone to jaw pain and migraines. In this case, we advise the patient to get suited for a dental night guard available at our Yorkville dental office. This would help with teeth grinding or clenching which is a common stress-related problem.
If you suffer from these conditions, you may notice pain in the jaw, teeth grinding sounds, and facial pain. In most cases teeth grinding occurs at night time, it can be caused by a variety of circumstances such as stress and anxiety. This situation can lead to more issues such as damaging dental fillings and wearing down teeth enamel which can cause tooth sensitivity.
The dental office can customize the dental night guard based on different factors. The night guard can be created for heavy, moderate and light grinding of the teeth. Night guards are relatively durable and easy to use however they may require some getting used to.
Prior to getting fitted for a night guard there are a few things that can be done to try to stop teeth grinding such as stopping any chewing habits like gum or other objects. If you’re suffering from this please do not hesitate to call our office and set up an appointment today.
