DENTAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH AUTISM
Many people may be totally unaware of the surprising link between autism and teeth grinding. For patients on the spectrum, teeth grinding can make slumber needlessly uncomfortable, leading to sleep disturbances, low energy, and additional dental issues down the road. So why is this type of discomfort “needless” for those with autism? Because with innovative, reliable mouthguards from CustMbite, there's no need for this type of issue to continue.
Products like the CustMbite Hard Surface Nightguard are the result of considerable research, and they have been designed by dentists with decades of experience in the field of sleep medicine. With an emphasis on comfort, customization, and affordability, these oral appliances are ideal solutions for anyone struggling with teeth grinding and can be an excellent choice for those on the spectrum.
Various studies have observed the link between autism and teeth grinding. One 2008 study in PubMed stated that: “Bruxism or forceful grinding of teeth is one of the sleep problems commonly observed in children with autism.” Those on the spectrum commonly complain of discomfort and oral sensitivity, but communication isn't always easy when autism is present. This means that many children may be struggling with teeth grinding (also known as bruxism) without their parents noticing. This is why it's generally a good idea to take a proactive approach by working with a dentist and determining whether your child needs help with their teeth grinding.
Teeth grinding can lead to significant damage, and in some cases extensive repairs are necessary due to chipping and flattening. Bruxism can also lead to TMJ disorder, which occurs when the jaw becomes misaligned after continued stress and pressure on specific joints.
If you want to save your child from painful (not to mention expensive) dental surgeries, stainless steel crowns, and other reconstructive methods, it's best to address the problem nice and early by protecting vulnerable teeth with a reliable mouthguard. CustMbite products like the Hard Surface Nightguard protect your child's teeth effectively without causing any additional discomfort. Made from Vistamaxx material, these devices are slim and flexible for a “barely there” feel. They also feature a hard surface layer that allows teeth to move around freely, sliding back and forth without any restrained movement of the jaw.
If you or a family member is dealing with autism and teeth grinding, CustMbite oral appliances can help. All of these products are customizable, comfortable, and affordable. That being said, you have a few different options when choosing mouthguards from CustMbite:
