How Do I Know If I Need A Nightguard?
- Abruptly waking up with unusual headaches
- The experience of swelling or pain in the jaw
- Mysterious damage to teeth
- Your partner may hear clicking or chattering noises that you make when you rest
- Teeth grinding can be set off by stress and anxiety
- It usually takes place throughout sleep and is often due to an abnormal bite, loose teeth or unbalanced and jagged teeth
- It can also be caused by a sleep condition such as sleep apnea
If a sleeping condition is activating the grinding, treating it might decrease or do away with the grinding practice all together. Grinding and clenching throughout sleep can add up to 200 pounds of force on your teeth, and often, can trigger damage of the tooth enamel and other oral health problem.
Why Should I Get a Nightguard?
How Can Dr.Franklin Help Me?
- Prevent or minimize foods and drinks which consist of caffeine, such as sodas, chocolate, and coffee
- Avoid alcohol. Grinding has the tendency to magnify after alcohol consumption.
- Do not chew on pencils or pens or anything that is not food. Avoid chewing gum as it allows your jaw muscles to obtain more utilized to clinching and makes you more likely to grind your teeth.
- Train yourself not to clench or grind your teeth. If you find that you clench or grind during the day, position the tip of your tongue in between your teeth. This practice trains your jaw muscles to loosen up.
- Relax your jaw muscles in the night by holding a warm washcloth against your cheek in front of your earlobe.
