Bruxism can manifest on the teeth as excessive chips, cracks, receding gums, and overall wear and tear. Other warning signs include dental procedures, such as fillings and crowns, which tend to wear out too quickly.
Nightguards are a type of oral appliance. This means that a little device is worn orally or in your mouth. These "guards" are custom-made to match the distinct features of your mouth.
A night guard protects your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues from the pressure caused by teeth-grinding habits. Wearing a night guard can help avoid morning headaches and TMJ pain and help you sleep better.
If you feel bruxism is causing you chipped teeth, crowns, headaches, and other problems, we urge you to visit Dr. Sahara immediately.
