Dental Mouth Guard Services
Stress, poor dental alignment, certain medications, and even caffeine can lead to teeth grinding or clenching while you sleep. If you are waking up with a sore jaw, headaches, or tooth pain on a regular basis, you may be suffering from a condition called bruxism, or teeth grinding, particularly while you sleep. The simplest way to combat bruxism is by using a dental night guard, or a mouth guard for teeth grinding while you sleep.
Dental night guards are available over the counter at nearly any pharmacy, but these often do not fit comfortably. By getting a dental mouth guard made by a dentist, you are receiving a dental mouth guard that is custom made to fit your bite pattern, making it much more comfortable. At Lifetime Dental, we offer advanced dental night guard services, including fitting, to make sure you get a good night’s sleep without damaging your smile or waking up with bruxism-related pain.
