Why do you need to wear dental night guards?

If you normally grind your teeth while sleeping, wearing a night guard is a good way to prevent any damages to your teeth. Keep in mind that you only get a set of permanent teeth. Hence, preventing them from damages is a good decision.


What are the benefits of wearing a dental night guard?

There are various benefits of wearing a night guard. Some of the benefits include:

* Preventing teeth from damages – if you had some repairs done on your teeth or some work was done to improve your dental system, grinding of teeth can change everything. Teeth grinding can make the teeth crack, chip or wear down. Fortunately, a dental night guard will prevent damages when your teeth grind at night.

* Treating TMD – severe teeth grinding can lead to TMJ problems. This is a disorder that can cause pain and discomfort around the jaws. Some people experience sore jaws and occasional headaches in the morning.

If you feel you might be suffering from TMJ problems or your jaws ache while eating, visit Sun Lake Dental Care for an examination by Dr Mike Ghiami. It is important to wear a night guard to treat TMJ problems and prevent the teeth from grinding while you sleep.

* Reducing discomfort – teeth grinding at night can cause toothache and a headache in the morning.

Dental night guards can be comfortable if you get custom night guards. Happily, by visiting our clinic, you will have a dental examination to create guards that match your measurements.
