If you are grinding your teeth while you sleep, you may be in need of a mouthguard for sleeping. Our Sterling Heights dentists would be happy to assess your pain and determine if this is the right solution for you. Wearing a mouthguard while you sleep each night is usually the easiest and best way to protect your teeth from the wear and tear of grinding. It may take a little while to get used to sleeping with the mouthguard in, but if you make a habit of it, it will soon be part of your regular routine and you’ll barely notice the difference. In the long run, protecting your teeth with a mouthguard will save you a lot of unnecessary pain caused by teeth grinding.
If you have been experiencing pain in your jaw and aren’t sure of the cause, there is a good chance that you may be grinding your teeth at night. The condition of grinding one’s teeth at night is called “bruxism” and, according to the National Sleep Foundation, it affects about 8% of all adults. While stress is certainly one of the causes of teeth grinding, it is most often caused by misaligned teeth, an abnormal bite, or sleep apnea. If you think that you or a loved one may be grinding their teeth at night, call Bright Side Dental in Sterling Heights and we can fit you with a personalized mouthguard for sleeping.
Every mouthguard for sleeping is sculpted and customized to fit its patient’s mouth. If you or a loved one grind their teeth, contact us online or call Bright Side Dental – Sterling Heights at (586) 247-0010 and schedule a consultation today.
