Sleep Safely And Soundly With Night Guards

Do you often wake up with headaches, jaw pain, or sensitive teeth? Are you concerned about your teeth, as you've noticed they're becoming increasingly worn down or chipped? These could be signs of bruxism, a common condition characterized by teeth grinding and clenching during sleep. Fortunately, at Premier Dentistry of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, FL, we offer night guards to protect your oral health.

Understanding Bruxism:

Bruxism, often called teeth grinding or jaw clenching, can occur both during the day and at night. However, it is most prevalent during sleep, making it difficult for individuals to control consciously. Some common symptoms of bruxism include:

  • Morning Headaches: Frequent headaches upon waking up are a common symptom of nighttime teeth grinding.
  • Jaw Pain: Bruxism can lead to soreness or pain in the jaw muscles, often extending to the temples.
  • Tooth Sensitivity: As the protective enamel on your teeth wears down, you may experience heightened tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
  • Tooth Damage: Over time, bruxism can result in cracked, chipped, or flattened teeth.
  • Sleep Disturbances: Bruxism can disrupt your sleep and your partner's due to the noise of grinding teeth.

The Role of Night Guards:

Night guards are custom-made oral appliances that fit comfortably over your teeth. They act as a protective barrier, preventing your upper and lower teeth from coming together while you sleep, cushioning and absorbing the force of grinding and clenching. Night guards can significantly reduce the frequency and intensity of morning headaches by preventing constant pressure on the jaw. With regular use, night guards can help maintain the integrity of your teeth and prevent the need for costly dental procedures in the future.

If you suspect you may have bruxism or have already experienced some of the symptoms, contact us today for a consultation. With a proper night guard, you can wake up feeling refreshed, pain-free, and with a beautiful smile intact.
