Why Children May Need a Nightguard
Bruxism is the word that describes teeth grinding and clenching, and it often happens at night. Studies have shown that children of all ages are dealing with a great deal of stress in today’s world. Stress can present itself in many ways—including bruxism. If you notice that your child is grinding their teeth during the day, they may be doing so overnight as well. This can lead to a host of dental and orthodontic problems in the future, so having your child use the CustMbite Nightguard for children is a good idea.
As a parent, you want to make sure your child is able to be awake and alert during the day, whether it’s for school or for fun weekend activities with family and friends. If your youngster is experiencing nighttime bruxism, it’s likely they are having small interruptions in their sleep throughout the night from the noise or pain of teeth grinding. This can leave them too weary to be at their best to learn or enjoy their free time. Preventing nighttime bruxism can help your child sleep more solidly throughout the night so they can use their waking time to their best advantage.
The Negative Effects of Nighttime Bruxism
Occasional and nighttime teeth grinding may not seem too serious at first, but bruxism can cause all sorts of detrimental effects on your child’s health. Most of the symptoms are short-term in nature, but their effects may be reduced with the use of the CustMbite Nightguard. For example, people with bruxism are three times more likely to suffer from headaches. In addition, many also experience pain in the jaw and facial muscles as well.
Earaches are particularly common in children with bruxism because the temporomandibular (jaw) joint is located right next to the inner workings of the ear. Inflammation in this joint can cause blockage in the ear canal, leading to ear pain and ear infections. Over time, these kinds of problems can lead to hearing loss. If your child is suffering from ear pain caused by bruxism, do what you can as soon as possible to mitigate against these kinds of effects.
The long-term effects of bruxism can even include temporomandibular joint disorder (often known as simply TMJ) and unusual tooth wear and breakage. The use of a quality nightguard can help mitigate against these long-term effects as well as the short-term aches and pains associated with bruxism.
