For most parents, their top priority is protecting their kids. Grinding their teeth at night might not sound like a huge deal, but the truth is that it can slowly degrade your child's dental health, eventually leading to serious problems. Not only can these problems affect your child's smile and self-confidence, but they can also be incredibly costly to fix. For these reasons, it makes sense to help kids grinding their teeth at night as quickly and effectively as possible.

Fortunately, there's an affordable, customizable, and comfortable solution. A CustMbite Nightguard helps your children avoid serious dental issues such as bruxism or TMJ disorder with proven techniques studied and approved by real dentists. Even better, these mouthguards come in kid-friendly sizes, allowing young individuals to experience a snug, “just right” fit.

What happens if you don't help kids grinding their teeth at night?

Teeth grinding is known in the dental world as “bruxism,” and this condition can become serious over time. If you don't help kids grinding their teeth at night, they could chip, scrape, or wear down their teeth – to the point where extensive dental procedures are necessary.

Bruxism can also lead to other issues, such as TMJ disorder. Also known as a “misaligned jaw,” this issue can be incredibly painful and frustrating, leading to clicking or popping sounds when a child chews their food or yawns.

Kids grinding teeth at night often suffer from sleep disturbances, making it more difficult for them to focus on school, athletics, or any other activity that they might be interested in during the day. Various studies have linked inadequate sleep with decreased brain development, learning problems, and negative emotions. To avoid all of these issues, it makes sense to address your child's teeth grinding problem as soon as possible.
