Jaw Pain While Chewing?

Do you have pain while you're chewing? The most common cause of jaw pain is bruxism, a condition that causes you to involuntarily grind or clench your teeth. This most often happens at night, so you may be unaware that bruxism could even be a cause.

Wearing a nightguard is a simple, effective way to reduce bruxism, and the pain you feel in your jaw as well. The problem is that it can be hard to find a nightguard that's both comfortable and affordable. Enter CustMbite Nightguards: a line of nightguards that can address many of the consequences of bruxism, including jaw pain while chewing.

What Can I Do About Chewing Pain?

If you're experiencing jaw pain when chewing, you'll first want to consult with your dentist. Then, you can discuss the many solutions that people use to address it. The methods used to ease chewing pain range from natural “remedies” like jaw repositioners to invasive surgical procedures. Most dentists recommend starting with the least invasive, most effective method.

While many people start out with a mouthguard to address jaw pain while chewing, most find it to be an effective way to reduce the pain. However, the level of comfort you achieve by wearing a nightguard is directly related to how well it works. After all, you won't reduce jaw pain when chewing if your nightguard is sitting on the bathroom counter.

What to Look for in A Nightguard for Chewing Pain

When you're searching for the right nightguard that can help you reduce pain while chewing, you'll want to look for a few specific things:

  1. Is the mouthguard easily moldable?
  2. Is the mouthguard thin?
  3. When it's in, can you breathe, drink, and speak easily?
  4. Is the mouthguard sanitary?
  5. Is it affordable?

You can find a nightguard that fits all these demands, but we offer two extra benefits you might not get elsewhere: a choice of colors and a choice of strength.

In addition to checking all of the boxes above, CustMbite's mouthguard for pain while chewing lets you choose your guard's strength level.
