Symptoms of Bruxism

Some people are unaware that they have bruxism until their teeth have already suffered from severe damage. If you want to keep your smile safe, it’s worth keeping an eye out for common bruxism symptoms, such as:

  • Unusually worn-down teeth.
  • Chronic jaw pain.
  • Teeth that have grown unusually sensitive.
  • Recurring headaches.

If you have noticed any of these symptoms recently, we encourage you to let our team know. We can check your mouth for signs of clenching and grinding, and if we have any reason to believe that you’re suffering from bruxism, we can discuss your options for treatment.

How Nightguards Can Make a Difference

Since you can’t control what your jaw does while you’re asleep, the next best thing you can do is make sure that your teeth are properly protected at night. A nightguard is a simple type of oral appliance that is worn over the teeth. It effectively acts as a barrier that prevents the upper and lower arches from making direct contact with each other.

By wearing a nightguard, you can relieve some of the pressure associated with bruxism. This helps keep your teeth safe from the damage they may have otherwise suffered from unchecked clenching and grinding. On top of that, a nightguard can help reduce the tension in your jaw that might be causing you discomfort.

Why Choose a Custom-Made Nightguard?

You have a choice when it comes to nightguards: you can pick one up at the store, or you can get a customized one from your dentist. While store-bought nightguards may seem more convenient, they are often made out of weaker materials, which affects their durability. On top of that, they may be less than comfortable due to not being designed for your specific smile.

A custom-made nightguard is often the better choice if you want a high-quality oral appliance that is made to last and takes your personal comfort into account. If you’re interested in getting a personalized nightguard, feel free to schedule a consultation with our team; we can give you more details on why this treatment option could be the bruxism solution that you have been looking for.
