A Simple Way to Ease Sudden Jaw Pain

While many people think of mouthguards as something athletes use, mouthguards can also be a great help in relieving sudden jaw pain unrelated to sports. Sudden jaw pain is often a symptom of a condition called bruxism.

If you're not familiar with the term bruxism, don't worry. It's the official medical term for “grinding or clenching teeth”. But those who grind or clench their teeth might not know it until they experience symptoms, including sudden jaw pain. This pain may be accompanied by a wide range of related maladies, like flattened or chipping teeth, a persistent dull headache, and more.

What Should I Do About Sudden Jaw Pain?

When you are experiencing sudden jaw pain, it's important for you to see a dentist or doctor. The most frequently recommended treatment is a nightguard, an oral appliance you can use overnight. If you're reluctant to get a nightguard, CustMbite offers a wide range of nightguards that address your jaw pain in an easy, comfortable, and affordable way. Want to learn more? Read on.

How Do Nightguards Reduce Jaw Pain?

No matter what the reason is behind your bruxism, there's no denying the consequences. In addition to the damage that can be caused to your teeth (like cracking, breaking, chipping, enamel wear…), bruxism can affect your entire upper body. Headaches, neck and shoulder pain, and sudden jaw pain are all signs that you may have bruxism.

While it can seem pretty clear that bruxism is the cause of your sudden jaw pain, it's always wise to get it treated by a dentist. While there are many different “natural solutions” to jaw pain, from pillows, exercises, headgear that attempts to align the jaw, and more, the treatment that is most often prescribed is a custom-fit nightguard from CustMbite.

Which CustMbite Nightguard is Right For Me?

CustMbite offers two different nightguards, and the right one for you will depend on your personal needs:

  1. The CustMbite Nightguard: Designed to stand up to mild to moderate bruxing. Its snug, customized fit means it's comfortable enough to wear all night while providing your smile with high-quality protection.
  2. The CustMbite Hard Surface Nightguard. All of the benefits of the original Nightguard, but also includes a patented hard surface layer that allows the teeth to move freely, preventing teeth grinding and hard clenching during sleep.

Wearing and Caring for a Nightguard is Easy — Really!

Still reluctant to pick up a nightguard? Let's address one of the reasons that people with sudden jaw pain are unwilling to invest in an oral appliance: the maintenance. That's not a problem with CustMbite's line of nightguards.

First, our Vistamaxx material is easy to mold (in two minutes or less!) made of a revolutionary material that holds its superior fitting properties even when remolded. That's a boon for everyone, especially those withbraces or upcoming dental work.

Second, CustMbite Nightguards couldn't be simpler to clean. No vinegar and baking soda necessary!
