Has someone told you that you grind your teeth while you sleep? Have you experienced waking up with a sore jaw, a dull headache or a throbbing tooth pain? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be suffering from a condition called bruxism. According to the American Dental Association, bruxism or teeth grinding affects about 10 to 15 percent of adults in America.
If you suffer from bruxism in North Carolina, it’s imperative to come visit us at Nexus Dental in Indian Trail before it results in major complications.
How Can a Night Guard Help?
While there are many ways to alleviate the effects of bruxism, one of the most popular and effective ways to prevent it is by using a night guard. A night guard is essentially a mouth guard that is worn strictly at night while you sleep. A night guard while sleeping can be used to prevent the following:
Chipping or cracking of teeth
Straining of jaw muscles
Headaches caused by grinding teeth
