What is bruxism?
Bruxism is when you grind or clench your teeth unconsciously, usually during sleep. Bruxism can be caused by a number of things, including stress, anxiety, sleep apnea, or even just an abnormal bite.
Why do I need a nightguard?
Nighttime teeth grinding can cause many problems, including headaches, jaw discomfort, sleep disruption, and damage to the teeth. Although bruxism has no cure, using a nightguard is an easy and cost effective way to alleviate your symptoms. Nightguards act as a cushion between your teeth while you sleep, preventing your teeth from grinding against each other and allowing you to sleep through the night and wake up feeling refreshed.
