Why Get Night Guards

Many people grind their teeth at night without being conscious of the fact that they do so. Patients with this habit often wake up with a headache or tense jaw and can also experience tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. Additionally, a throbbing pain in your ears can be an unpleasant side effect.

When you come into our Schererville office, we’ll thoroughly check for signs of tooth grinding and can happily fit afflicted patients with a dental night guard in order to troubleshoot the problem.

You deserve a better night's sleep, a healthy mouth, and a pain-free life. We’re here to make it all accessible.

How a Night Guard for Teeth Grinding Can Help

Bruxism, or tooth grinding, is a condition with a number of causes. It’s often brought on from stress during the day, and your jaw takes that stress out on you at night.

Regardless of the cause, it’s important to prevent tooth grinding from hurting your teeth. Constant tooth grinding can eventually destroy your enamel and even crack or break teeth.

Since you don’t have any control over grinding your teeth at night, dentists often prescribe a night guard, which is a plastic retainer that places a barrier between your teeth. You can still breathe and sleep normally, but when you grind your teeth, the teeth will grind against the plastic night mouth guard instead of against each other.

When you use a night guard for teeth grinding, you won’t have to worry about damaged teeth, and you’ll alleviate painful symptoms like headaches and earaches as well.
