Get Rid of Teeth Grinding Impacts with Custom-designed Nightguards

Do you wake up with pain around your jaw, neck, and head? Do you see signs of wear and tear on your teeth? These could be indications of teeth grinding or clenching. Teeth grinding is a common condition affecting almost a third of American adults. Unfortunately, many don’t know they have this condition until dental damage and other symptoms start cropping up. Luckily, you can keep teeth grinding in check by investing in a custom-made nightguard from Absolute Dental Care.

What are the symptoms of teeth grinding?

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, may be caused by stress and anxiety, although factors like bite misalignment and sleep apnea could be culprits. Occasional teeth grinding doesn’t usually cause harm, but it becomes a concern when it’s excessive. Symptoms of excessive teeth grinding include:

  • Worn-down teeth
  • Teeth sensitivity
  • TMJ headaches
  • Toothaches

While your tooth is the hardest part of your body, it’s no match against itself. As such, if you have bruxism, you need to act today before your smile suffers permanent damage. 

Custom-designed nightguards 

Want to win the battle against teeth grinding? Dr. Todd Anderson offers customized nightguards to protect your oral health against the dangers of teeth clenching or grinding. Nightguards create a buffer between teeth, cushioning them against unnecessary tension.

Pro-tip: All nightguards aren’t created equal. Unlike generic nightguards, ours are custom-designed after taking your bite impressions. The images are used to produce snugly-fitting dental appliances that remain intact throughout your sleep. 

Advantages of custom-made nightguards 

While custom-made nightguards are slightly more expensive than over-the-counter (OTC) nightguards, they are well worth every penny. Here are the advantages of custom-fitted appliances over their OTC counterparts: 

  • Offer a superior fit
  • They are safer for oral health
