Who Needs a Dental Bite Guard?
If you suffer from either bruxism (teeth grinding) or TMJ disorder, your doctor or dentist will probably initially ask you to use a dental bite guard like the CustMbite Nightguard to protect your teeth during the night. A lot of the symptoms of either condition can be alleviated by using a quality bite guard.
If you’re not sure whether you are dealing with either bruxism or TMJ disorder, there are specific symptoms for each condition that can give you a good idea. Though the cause of bruxism is not really known, it can often be present in people who are dealing with increased anxiety, anger, frustration, or stress.
Bruxism is generally the less serious of the two conditions, though the effects can be painful. The most obvious sign is waking up yourself or your sleep partner with the noise of grinding or gnashing teeth. You might also notice that you have flattened, chipped, fractured, or even loose teeth with no obvious explanation. Similarly, you may have a tooth or teeth that have worn enamel that exposes the deeper layers of the tooth.
If you’re not having problems with your teeth due to bruxism, you may be catching it early on. You may have noticed an increased tooth sensitivity or pain with no obvious cause. You might also have pain or soreness in your jaw, neck, face, or ear upon waking that is not explainable by other causes. People who have bruxism often suffer from headaches that start in the temples. If you have any of these symptoms, it’s worth checking with a doctor or dentist to see if you have bruxism.
TMJ disorder occurs when the temporomandibular joint, the one that connects your jaw to your skull, has come out of place. It has a few known causes, and chronic bruxism is actually one possible cause. You may also suffer from TMJ disorder due to a blow in the face or jaw or because you have damaged cartilage in the joint due to arthritis.
Some of the symptoms of TMJ disorder can be similar to those experienced during bruxism like aching pain or tenderness in your jaw or your ear. More specific symptoms include pain in the temporomandibular joint, difficulty or pain while chewing, or aching facial pain. A more serious case can cause locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your jaw. The most common sign of TMJ disorder is a clicking sound or grating sensation when you chew, talk, or yawn. If you believe you have TMJ disorder, you should talk to your doctor or dentist.
