Bruxism, or commonly known as teeth grinding, is an involuntary habit usually found with people – adult and children alike – who have stress or anxiety. According to Health Day, an estimated 40 million Americans grind their teeth, with more than 95 percent of them night time “bruxers” and 80 percent of adults oblivious to their teeth grinding habit. Usually a partner or a significant other is often the first to hear the nightly teeth grinding, which can last up to 40 minutes for every hour of sleep.
Teeth grinding exerts as much as 600 pounds of force per square inch, which is 10 times the force of regular chewing. While causing excessive wear and damage on the teeth. Untreated bruxism can also lead to serious health issues such as ear pain, neck pain, severe headaches, and temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) problems.
The most common treatment for nightly teeth grinding is a night guard, which we can mold for you here at Winter Garden Smiles. A custom fitted night guard can significantly reduce enamel damage, jaw joint inflammation, gum irritation, and prevent other serious health issues associated with bruxism. Night guard wearers have reported less pain and sleep better at night.
Frequently Asked Questions about Night Guards…
If I grind my teeth, is purchasing a night guard worth the expense?
Though custom night guards can cost hundreds of dollars, the cost of repairing or capping worn down teeth and treating other medical issues from teeth grinding will be more expensive than one night guard.
Should I buy a custom or off the shelf night guard?
An off the shelf night guard may seem easy on the budget, but an improper fitted night guard can cause a wearer significant problems such as headaches, jaw pains, and lack of sleep. Winter Garden Smiles can provide a custom fitted night guard that will properly protect teeth from further damage.
How long do night guards last?
With the proper care, your dental night guards can last up to ten years. You should rinse your night guard before and after every use. To properly clean a mouth guard, use a soft toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste once a day and soak in denture cleaner once a week.
