Suffering From Night Time Teeth Grinding?
Protect Your Teeth During Sleep With Night Guards
Do you suffer from facial pain, headaches and disrupted sleep? Perhaps you have noticed your teeth are worn, chipped and broken and can't recognise anything you do during waking hours that could cause this. Tooth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common condition that can cause serious damage to your teeth and jaw, and worn teeth and disrupted sleep could be a sign that you are grinding your teeth at night. Fortunately, a night guard may be an effective solution to protect your teeth and help you get a good night's rest.
Night mouth guards are dental appliances that are worn over the teeth to protect them from damage caused by grinding. They also help to prevent pain and discomfort in the jaw, head and neck.
Noosa Family Dental is proud to offer dental night guards for our patients across Noosa. With years of experience, we will assess your teeth and develop a custom-fit night mouthguard that offers the ultimate comfort and tooth protection. Get in touch for more information today or book an appointment to discuss your needs with our dentist.
About Tooth Grinding & Night Guards
What Is Night Time Teeth Grinding?
Also known as Bruxism, nighttime tooth grinding and clenching is a common condition and affects one in 10 of all adults. While mild cases will not be detrimental to your health, severe and ongoing tooth grinding can cause extensive damage to the teeth and gums.
Unfortunately, it is not until extensive damage has occurred that patients become aware of this condition. Common symptoms include:
- Face, jaw, neck and shoulder pain
- Worn-down or broken teeth
- Increased sensitivity
- Headaches and earaches
- Disturbed sleep
As a prevention-focused practice, Noosa Family Dental focuses on the early detection and management of tooth wear. We take a multipronged approach to help patients find the source of their grinding to better manage and overcome it!
