If you or your partner are constantly grinding your teeth at night, it’s time to schedule an appointment at Bright Side Dental – Farmington to see if a mouthguard for sleeping is the right solution. Grinding teeth at night, or “Bruxism”, is natural but can result in a variety of long-term, adverse effects if left unchecked. Farmington’s services help ease the comfort by creating a customized mouthguard.
Because bruxism most often occurs during sleep, you may have this condition and not even be aware of it. However, there are some symptoms that you can look for if you are concerned about this issue. If you wake up with an aching jaw, get frequent headaches, or experience tooth pain or increased tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures when eating and drinking, these could be signs of bruxism. Just because you experience these symptoms, however, does not guarantee that you have bruxism, so you should still check with your Farmington dentist.
If you do grind your teeth at night, a personalized mouth guard for sleeping from our Farmington office is the easiest way to prevent any further damage. Some stores do sell mouth guards for similar purposes, but they are not custom-made by a dentist to fit your teeth and are often less comfortable for sleeping in.
Call Bright Side Dental – Farmington at 248-919-2490, or contact us online and see if a mouth guard for sleeping is right for you.
