Do you usually have a sore jaw or a headache when you get up in the morning? Do you have a worn-down, flat appearance to your teeth? If this is the case, you may have bruxism, or subconscious teeth grinding and clenching. Many people only experience this while they are sleeping, making it a difficult habit to overcome.
Our dentists may prescribe a protective nightguard to be worn at bedtime to preserve your smile from damage. This mouthpiece acts as a thin barrier between the upper and lower arch of teeth, preventing any potentially dangerous contact while sleeping.
