Protect Your Teeth With A Bruxism Nightguard
If you experience bruxism, you know that the condition can cause significant jaw pain, headaches, damage to teeth, and more. At Gifford Family Dentistry in Portland, our team would be happy to provide you with a comfortable, custom-fitted nightguard to protect your teeth while you sleep.
How do bruxism nightguards work?
By cushioning the impact of teeth grinding and clenching, a nightguard can help alleviate jaw pain while preventing further damage to your teeth. The guard also works to keep your mouth in a healthy position, which can help relax your jaw muscles and reduce tension.
What’s involved with having a nightguard created?
After we’ve examined your mouth and determined that a nightguard is right for you, we’ll take an impression of your teeth and bite, which we’ll use to create a custom-fitted guard. Once the guard is crafted, we’ll check its fit before sending you home with your new oral appliance.
Who should consider bruxism nightguards?
Patients who have (or suspect they may have) bruxism are likely to be ideal candidates for a nightguard. If you experience jaw pain, headaches, or have unexplained tooth pain or sensitivity, call us today for a thorough assessment.
