Are your teeth worn down? Do you have sensitivity in all your teeth when you eat or drink cold foods? You may be grinding your teeth. Grinding your teeth usually occurs while you are sleeping. This can cause pain in your teeth and jaw, lead to bone loss around your teeth, and wear down your teeth, causing damage to them. A nightguard is used to stop this process and prevent further damage. A night guard is not as thick as a mouth guard. It is custom fitted for your comfort, and to allow for a perfect fit.
If you suffer from severe headaches or migraines, they may be due to clenching and grinding. This type of night guard is FDA approved to retrain the muscles in your jaw, up into your temples and around your ears to relax and will alleviate this pain.
