Are you prone to jaw clenching and grinding?
Do you clench and/or grind your teeth during the day, or at night? Sometimes we have no idea we are doing these things at night, but your dental professional may be able to see signs in your mouth that you are.
Do You Need A Nightguard?
A nightguard is recommended for those with clenching and grinding habits so that your teeth are protected from these movements and forces of this habit. Symptoms may include jaw pain, headaches, wear of the tooth, gum recession, and cracked or chipped teeth. If you do clench or grind, it is important to be proactive, and have a consult for a nightguard. Let us know at your next appointment if you suspect you may clench and/or grind.
