Understanding Bruxism: The Silent Threat to Your Oral Health

Nightguards in Newton

Bruxism, or chronic teeth grinding, exerts excessive pressure on your teeth and TMJ, leading to a host of dental issues, including premature tooth wear, fractures, jaw pain, and TMJ disorder. Identifying bruxism early is crucial, as symptoms like morning jaw soreness or bite marks on your tongue indicate active grinding during sleep.

The Dual Benefits of Nightguards

Our nightguards are engineered to prevent direct tooth-to-tooth contact, safeguarding your teeth and dental work from damage. Additionally, they promote proper jaw alignment and muscle relaxation, serving as a non-invasive remedy for bruxism and associated TMJ discomfort.

The Link Between Tooth Wear, TMJ Disorder, and Headaches

TMJ disorder, often resulting from bruxism, can manifest as joint pain, limited jaw movement, and recurrent headaches. Before resorting to medication or surgery, consider a nightguard. This non-invasive solution, along with potential orthodontic therapy, can effectively address TMJ-related issues.

Personalized Nightguard Fabrication

Getting your custom nightguard starts with a simple appointment for an impression or scan of your teeth. This ensures a perfect fit, tailored to your unique bite, offering superior protection and comfort compared to store-bought options. Our nightguards are designed for a snug fit, minimizing bulkiness and enhancing sleep quality.

Maintaining Your Nightguard

Proper care extends the life of your nightguard. Daily cleaning with lukewarm water and a soft toothbrush keeps it in top condition. Avoid hot water to prevent warping, and consider using a denture cleanser for deep cleaning. Always store your nightguard in a safe, dry place.

Protecting Your Investment in Your Smile

Bruxism can unknowingly compromise your dental health and the longevity of cosmetic dental work. We recommend a protective nightguard following any major dental restoration to prevent unintended damage. It’s a small investment with significant benefits for your oral health and the durability of your dental enhancements.
