Who needs a nighttime tooth guard?
If you wake up in the morning — or worse, in the middle of the night — with jaw pain or headaches, you could benefit from using the CustMbite Nightguard, a nighttime tooth guard that can help alleviate the symptoms caused by TMJ disorder or bruxism. If you find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth at night or notice that your jaw makes a popping sound when you chew or yawn, you may be suffering from bruxism or TMJ disorder. These conditions can make it difficult for you to sleep through the night. Continue reading to learn more about these tooth and jaw issues and learn more about how the CustMbite Nightguard can help to reduce the pain.
What exactly are TMJ disorder and bruxism?
TMJ disorder is a misalignment of the temporomandibular joint, which is where the jaw connects to the skull. There are many ways in which this can happen. An injury to the face or jaw can result in this kind of misalignment. But even seemingly innocuous things like chewing gum or chewing your own lip too much can cause the joint to come out of alignment. Clenching your teeth can be both a cause and an effect of TMJ disorder. If you’re experiencing a greater degree of stress than normal, you might find yourself clenching your teeth in response. This is something you can stop doing during the day, but if your stress carries into your sleeping time, you may need assistance from a tooth guard to stop clenching your teeth at night.
TMJ disorder can manifest itself as other types of symptoms as well. You may not feel jaw pain, but instead have earaches or headaches when you awaken. Or perhaps your shoulder or back aches even though you didn’t sleep in an uncomfortable position. These are less frequent, but still common, symptoms of TMJ disorder. The teeth clenching that often happens while you’re sleeping can affect other muscle systems aside from those in your jaw, which is why the pain may come from another area of your body. If this sounds familiar, wearing a nighttime tooth guard like the CustMbite Nightguard can help to relieve the pain of TMJ symptoms.
Bruxism simply means teeth grinding. It can be a symptom of stress, a bad habit, or a symptom of TMJ disorder. Bruxism doesn’t sound serious, but it can have very severe consequences. As you continue to grind your teeth, the protective enamel wears down. This can expose the raw nerve of your tooth. Not only is this extremely painful, but it can lead to abscesses, heart problems, and even death. Clearly, taking care of this habit is in your best overall interest.
If you don’t experience teeth grinding during the day, there are telltale signs that you’re grinding them during the night. You may notice that you have teeth that are flattened, fractured, chipped, or even loose. You may have increased tooth pain and sensitivity throughout the day. You may have damage inside your mouth from chewing on the insides of your cheeks, and your sleep may even be disrupted by the pain or noise associated with teeth grinding.
Whether you have bruxism due to TMJ disorder, or either disorder on their own, a nighttime tooth guard can make all the difference. The CustMbite Nightguard is the best nighttime mouthguard on the market, so consider getting one for yourself.
