What Is Sleep Bruxism?

Bruxism is the medical term used to describe excessive grinding or clenching of your teeth. One might not be aware of this habit until symptoms start to cause problems. Nightguards were created specifically to treat nocturnal bruxism. Nightguards are soft or  firm acrylic pieces that cover the top or bottom row of teeth. They protect your teeth from the force of clenching and stop them from grinding together, avoiding headaches, broken teeth or swollen gums.

Common Signs of Sleep Bruxism

Talk to your dentist about the following signs and symptoms:

  • Chipped or worn teeth
  • Waking up with headaches
  • Increasing spaces between the teeth.
  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder—inflammation of the jaw due to clenching
  • Chronic grinding 

Are you or your child into sports?

A custom mouthguard should be made if you or your child intends to participate in sports. Mouthguards are made specifically to guard against injury from trauma sustained during an activity or sport.

Custom mouthguards are smooth and comfortable to wear. They stay firmly in place on your teeth and are simple to put in and take out because they were made specifically for you. Compared to mouthguards purchased over the counter, they offer more protection and are more comfortable.

Jen the hygienist is very compassionate, professional and amazing at her job. Made both myself and my mother feel very comfortable throughout the visit. My mom has a perpetual phobia of the dentist and Jen handled her cleaning like the pro she is! Highly reccomend Jean D’Arc dental for their customer service and care, everyone from receptionist to hygienists and the dentists are wonderful! Lifetime client.
