Relieve The Symptoms Of Bruxism With Bruxism Nightguards
At Smiles 4 U in Overland Park, we offer custom-made bruxism nightguards to help our patients manage their bruxism symptoms. If left untreated, bruxism may cause damage and erosion to the teeth and can lead to more severe issues later on.
What is bruxism?
Bruxism is a condition that causes people to unconsciously grind or clench their teeth during the day or at night, creating pain and discomfort. Symptoms of bruxism include worn-down tooth enamel, facial and jaw pain, headaches, and in some cases, tooth damage or fractures. People with bruxism may not even know they are grinding their teeth while sleeping.
What are bruxism nightguards?
Bruxism nightguards are custom-made oral appliances that fit comfortably over the upper or lower teeth to protect them from the damaging effects of grinding and clenching. The appliance uses an impression of the patient’s teeth to fit snugly and comfortably.
What is involved in getting a bruxism nightguard?
Getting a bruxism nightguard usually involves two visits to our office in Overland Park. During the first visit, we take impressions of your teeth and send them to our dental laboratory. We may need to repair any damaged teeth before fitting the nightguard. During the second visit, we evaluate the fit and adjust the nightguard if necessary.
What is it like to wear bruxism nightguards?
Bruxism nightguards are comfortable to wear and easy to get used to. Most patients don’t even realize they have them in while they sleep.
What are the benefits of wearing bruxism nightguards?
Bruxism nightguards can help reduce the pain associated with bruxism and prevent further damage to your teeth and gums. They are highly durable and can last for many years with proper care.
Who should consider getting bruxism nightguards?
Anyone who experiences jaw pain or headaches due to teeth grinding should consider getting a bruxism nightguard to protect their teeth. The appliance can help relieve your symptoms so you can get a good night’s rest.
