Do you wake up with a headache or a sore jaw? Is your spouse or partner complaining about you making noises at night? You might have bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding. It’s a common issue, but it can also be very dangerous to the health of your natural teeth. Bruxism can exacerbate TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) and damage or even completely wear down your teeth. There are ways to reduce the amount of damage done which can be discussed with an experienced professional at Sherwood Park Denture Clinic. One method is prescribing the use of a night guard for our Edmonton patients which will limit the effects of teeth grinding. Visit our clinic if you are looking for quality night guards in Camrose.
Night guards are the devices that help in acting as a barrier between your teeth. These are also known as mouth guards and they are worn over teeth to protect them from grinding or injury from sports.
These are customized according to your teeth. At first, our denturists at Sherwood Park Denture Clinic Ltd will make an impression of your teeth and then a mouth guard will be molded.
How Do Night Guards Help?
Night guards give complete protection, comfort and bring your sleep back. Wondering how? When you clench your jaw, the night guard will help in lightening the tension. You will be applying pressure on the night guard instead of your teeth. This cushioning helps in preventing face and jaw pain and also protects the enamel of your teeth.
