Benefits of Using a Nighttime Dental Guard
If you suffer from nighttime bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) or TMJ disorder, you can benefit from a nighttime dental guard like the CustMbite Nightguard. When you use this device, you may avoid some of the painful consequences of grinding or clenching your teeth at night. You’re less likely to suffer head, ear, face, jaw, or neck aches related to bruxism and TMJ disorder if you wear a nighttime dental guard that prevents your teeth from grinding or clenching together. Even your sleep partner can benefit from a nightguard since they won’t be woken up by the sound of you grinding your teeth.
Other benefits of using a quality nightguard like the CustMbite Nightguard include better sleep, more alertness during your waking hours, and less propensity to accidents during your waking hours. Sleep deprivation caused by bruxism or TMJ disorder can lead to some disastrous consequences, including chipped, broken, or even loose teeth. Continue reading to learn how a lack of sleep can affect your body and mind, and more about how the CustMbite Nightguard can help you avoid suffering from these consequences by providing you with a better night’s sleep.
Consequences of Sleep Deprivation
- Memory problems. It is while you are sleeping that your brain forms essential connections that help you process and remember new information from each day. If you’re losing sleep every night due to teeth grinding or clenching, both your short- and long-term memory can be negatively affected.
- Mood changes. Most people have the occasional sleepless night, and they might notice they are more moody and quick-tempered the following day. This is exacerbated by sleeping poorly due to bruxism or TMJ disorder. Long-term sleep deprivation can lead to mood disorders like anxiety and depression.
- Weakened immunity. A lack of proper sleep weakens your immune system so your body has a harder time fighting off viruses like the common cold, influenza, and Covid-19. Without proper sleep, you’re more likely to get sick when exposed to these viruses.
- Risk of diabetes. Your body’s release of insulin can be affected negatively by a lack of sleep. Insulin lowers your blood sugar, and if it’s not doing its job, you are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
- Accidents. If you’re drowsy during the day because of a lack of proper sleep, your risk for all types of accidents is increased. This can happen with just one night of bad sleep, but gets worse the more frequently you lose sleep.
- High blood pressure. Your risk for high blood pressure rises if you get less than five hours of sleep each night.
- Weight gain. The chemicals that signal to your brain that you’re full get thrown off balance when you are sleep deprived. Because of this, you are more likely to overindulge and choose unhealthy foods when you’ve lost sleep.
- Poor balance. A lack of sleep can impact your balance and coordination. You’re more prone to falls and other physical accidents, which can lead to problems if you play sports or do other intense activities.
