Nightguard for Bruxism – Teeth Grinding

Do you grind your teeth in your sleep or find yourself clenching your jaw when stressed? This condition is referred to as bruxism and can damage your teeth and jaw. The muscles in the jaw that are used to chew tough foods are extremely strong. When that pressure is applied directly to the teeth when you grind or clench your teeth, it can wear down the surface or even crack the teeth. Our team at Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers effective general dental treatment for bruxism, using a dental nightguard to protect your teeth.

The exact cause of bruxism is not known, but it is often related to stress or other factors in your life. While you can manage the impulse to clench your jaw when you are awake, it can be difficult to stop nocturnal teeth grinding. Not only can it cause structural damage to your teeth, it can also put excess stress on the jaw joint. This can lead to jaw and facial pain, even TMJ or TMD. Teeth grinding can also be disruptive for your sleep partner, which is one more reason to seek treatment.

Protect Your Teeth with a Dental Nightguard

Our dental team at Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can create a customized nightguard that can eliminate the effects of bruxism while you sleep. We make a comfortable nightguard that fits over your teeth to protect them from damage while you sleep. This puts a layer of protection between your upper and lower teeth and stops the irritating noise of teeth grinding. It also protects your jaw joint from exertion while you sleep. Some people also experience relief from snoring or sleep apnea while wearing these oral devices. The dental nightguard is made from an impression of your teeth, so it fits perfectly and is very comfortable.

Protect your teeth and jaw from damage. If you suffer from bruxism, contact our office and schedule an exam and a fitting for a customized dental nightguard.
