Nightguards for Clenching and Grinding
If you wake up with sore teeth, sore temperomandibular joint , headaches, or tooth sensitivity, you might have Bruxism, a nocturnal grinding or clenching habit. Not only can it cause muscle pain and headaches, but clenching and grinding may also damage enamel and dentin of your teeth.
Your jaws exerts an enormous amount of force and may do so unconsciously. Certain medications, stress, alcohol, and lifestyle factors can all affect the severity of your bruxing habit. At Campbell dentist Bhavana Thakur, DDS we make custom nightguards to protect our patients as they sleep.
Sports require the proper equipment to keep participants safe during practice and games. You wouldn’t play football without a helmet, right? An athletic mouthguard works in the same way by placing a barrier over your teeth that absorbs impact and reduces trauma.
Custom mouthguards come in a variety of colors, and because they are made just for you, they stay put when you need them most! Adults and children can benefit from mouthguards because they may save your smile.
