Do you suffer from teeth grinding or jaw clenching?

If you’re wondering how to stop teeth grinding or how to stop clenching your jaw, you’re not alone. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a common malady for both children and adults. Jaw clenching can happen as a result of TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder, which is fairly common among adults. Our CustMbite Nightguard can help mitigate the effects of either of these disorders.

There are other signs that you may have bruxism, which can be helpful to know because if you sleep alone and only grind your teeth at night, you might not be aware you suffer from this disorder. If your teeth are fractured, chipped, flattened, or even loose with no apparent cause, it could be from grinding your teeth at night over time. In addition, you could experience the wearing of your tooth enamel to the point that deeper layers of your teeth are exposed. When you wake up, you may experience tired or tight jaw muscles or a jaw that feels “locked” that you need to pop open or closed. You could also experience pain in your jaw, neck, or face upon waking. Another sign that you are suffering from nighttime bruxism is a recurring dull headache that starts in the temples. 

Some of the signs of TMJ disorder are the same as those of bruxism, such as pain or tenderness in your jaw. Pain specifically in the temporomandibular joint can pinpoint which of these disorders you suffer. Another sign that you may have TMJ disorder is a pain in the ear that doesn’t have any cause within the ear canal. This can happen because the swollen joint is so near to your ear canal. The most obvious sign of TMJ disorder is a clicking or grating noise or sensation when you chew, talk, or yawn. 

How to Stop Teeth Grinding or Jaw Clenching Damage

One thing you can do during your waking hours to help prevent your teeth from grinding at night is manage your stress levels. That’s because often bruxism and TMJ disorder are linked to highly stressed individuals. If stress is the cause of your bruxism, certain relaxation practices like meditation or vigorous exercise during the day could help slow down or prevent the teeth-grinding behavior. Another possibility is talking to a counselor or psychologist who can help you manage the stressful situations in your life.

If you’ve reduced or eliminated stress from the picture and still suffer from bruxism, a quality nightguard is the next thing you’ll want to try. Because the teeth grinding and jaw clenching that come along with bruxism and TMJ disorder are mostly done at night, you can’t just will yourself to stop. You need help. And that’s what the CustMbite Nightguard provides. If you talk to your dentist about these issues, it’s likely that the first thing they will prescribe is a quality nightguard like ours.

How can the CustMbite Nightguard help me stop my teeth grinding?

When you first receive your nightguard, you will be able to custom-fit it to your teeth quickly and easily. Complete instructions on how to do this, whether you have braces or not, are included with your nightguard. The custom fitting serves two purposes. First, it helps make the nightguard more comfortable. Second, it keeps it in place all night—after all, a nightguard on your pillow isn’t helping stop teeth grinding or jaw clenching.

The CustMbite Nightguard is made of our patented VistaMaxx material, which is flexible enough to allow you to shape it to your teeth and wear it comfortably. It’s also strong enough to keep your teeth from grinding together and stop your jaw from clenching to the point that it damages your teeth. The nightguard was designed with assistance from dental professionals for your comfort and protection. It has been evaluated and cleared by the FDA and is free of BPA, PVC, phthalates, and latex. They do not absorb saliva, water, or bacteria, so keeping them clean is as easy as washing them with soap and water each morning when you brush your teeth.

Because bruxism is something that is frequently suffered by younger children, we offer the CustMbite Nightguard in both regular and petite sizes. Not only that, but we offer both sizes in five different colors—clear, pink, blue, navy, and black. Why not make stopping your teeth from grinding or stopping your jaw from clenching a little bit fun and fashionable?
