Alleviate The Symptoms Of Bruxism With Nightguards
Bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding or jaw clenching, affects millions of people worldwide. This involuntary habit, often occurring during sleep, can lead to various dental and health issues. Fortunately, a simple and effective solution is available in the form of bruxism nightguards from Woodland Lakes Dental in Orlando and Alafaya.
What is bruxism?
Bruxism is characterized by the grinding, clenching, or gnashing of teeth. Chronic bruxism can significantly damage teeth, jaw muscles, and surrounding tissues. The exact causes of bruxism are not fully understood, but stress, anxiety, misaligned teeth, and certain medications are believed to contribute.
What are the symptoms of bruxism?
Worn-down tooth surfaces, fractures, or chipped teeth are common indicators of teeth grinding. Frequent or persistent jaw, face, or ear pain can result from excessive clenching. Morning headaches or migraines often occur due to the strain on the jaw muscles during sleep. Tightness or soreness in the muscles of the face, primarily upon waking up, can indicate bruxism.
How can a bruxism nightguard help?
A bruxism nightguard is a custom-made dental appliance designed to protect your teeth and alleviate the symptoms of bruxism. These nightguards are typically made of durable and flexible materials that are comfortable to wear during sleep. They absorb the force generated from grinding or clenching, preventing direct contact and reducing the risk of dental damage.
Nightguards act as cushions, safeguarding your teeth from excessive wear and fractures. By providing a stable and balanced bite, nightguards help relax the jaw muscles, reducing discomfort and relieving pain. Nightguards promote uninterrupted sleep by minimizing disturbances caused by teeth grinding, allowing you and your partner to enjoy a peaceful night's rest.
