>Bruxism refers to the act of grinding or clenching the teeth. While teeth grinding can happen at any time during the day, it is often a habit that patients unknowingly engage in while they sleep. You may be aware of how your teeth grinding habit affects your partner’s sleep, and you should also know that it can impact you as well. In fact, nighttime bruxism can lead to disruptive symptoms and significant consequences within your dental health, including the following:
- Worn down teeth
- Damaged or loose dental restorations
- Sensitive or sore teeth
- Painful jaw symptoms/TMJ
- Morning headaches
At ConfiDenT, we proudly offer a valued solution for patients who grind or clench their teeth during the night. We can protect your comfort as well as your smile health with a custom-fabricated night guard.
