Clenching and grinding your teeth can lead to problems such as having teeth that are unattractive, flat, sensitive, with a high risk of becoming loose, and breaking into pieces. Aside from that, excess grinding can cause muscle tenderness and spasms—leading to headaches and neck aches. One of the best solutions for clenching and grinding teeth is to use a night guard.
A night guard is a thin transparent device worn over the surface of the teeth while you sleep. It helps you by preventing your top and bottom teeth from touching, thus, preventing them from grinding. Using a night guard can help prevent these symptoms from occurring or at least prevent them from worsening. Night guards can be bought over the counter or on the internet. However, the best night guards are those that are custom-molded to your teeth to provide the best fit like the ones we offer here at Village Dental.
If you wear a night guard to prevent teeth grinding, it is crucial to keep it clean. Here are a few tips that can help you take care of your night guards:
