Protecting Your Teeth While You Sleep
Do you find yourself unconsciously grinding your teeth during sleep? This condition, known as bruxism, can be detrimental to your oral health. If you experience teeth grinding most nights, it’s crucial to reach out to our office and inquire about a night guard.
A night guard is a specialized removable dental appliance that bears a resemblance to an athletic mouthguard. It acts as a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth, effectively safeguarding them while you sleep.
To ensure optimal comfort and safety, Dr. Samuel will custom-fit your night guard during your appointment. This tailored approach guarantees a perfect fit and allows for effective protection against teeth wear, gum irritation, enamel damage, and jaw pain.
During your visit, Dr. Samuel will also discuss additional measures to help reduce or eliminate teeth grinding. These may include avoiding habits like chewing gum, alcohol consumption, and excessive caffeine intake, as they can heighten the risk of grinding.
If you suspect that you may be struggling with teeth grinding, don’t hesitate to contact our office and schedule an appointment. We are here to address your concerns and provide you with the necessary solutions to protect your smile.
