Night Guards Can Help With Sleep and Oral Health

Night Guards

Night Guards Forest Hills, NY

For anyone who grinds their teeth at night, we can help recommend several possible options for treatment. Grinding teeth can wear down the tooth enamel, causing jaw pain and increasing the risk of other oral health issues. Since the teeth grinding occurs at night, it can be challenging to prevent it without extra assistance.

We can determine your specific needs and provide you with the necessary tool to prevent the teeth from grinding against each other at night. This customized tool is known as a night guard and might be the solution you need.

Common Signs a Night guard is Necessary

One common sign that a patient is grinding their teeth at night is when a partner or family member notices. Another common sign of teeth grinding is a constant soreness in the teeth and jaw. Grinding teeth wears down the tooth enamel and can also lead to decay, tooth sensitivities, exposed nerves, or tooth loss.

In some cases, grinding the teeth may even cause gum recession or migraines. Wearing a night guard can help protect the teeth and jaw from grinding together.

Ease Discomfort

For anyone currently experiencing headaches, facial discomfort, jaw pain, or even insomnia, teeth grinding may be the cause. Wearing a night guard during sleep will help to prevent the upper and lower teeth from touching. By preventing the teeth from touching, a night guard will help relieve the possible symptoms or soreness.

Patients will also be able to sleep without any interruption from the soreness or symptoms that cause discomfort.

The Guard Will be a Custom Fit

Many people avoid getting night guards since they imagine them to be large, awkward, and uncomfortable. Fortunately, night guards are much less noticeable and much more comfortable than people may realize. We will customize the night guard specifically to the patient's teeth so it will not feel out of place and will blend in with your natural teeth. Patients can wear the night guard while sleeping and receive a good night's sleep regularly.

If you grind your teeth at night, do not hesitate to call us for treatment. If you want to save your natural teeth, avoid potential discomfort, and prevent financial burdens, we offer the perfect solution to stop your teeth grinding. Call us for more information.
