Who Needs a Mouthguard to Stop Teeth Grinding?
If you suffer from bruxism, you need a mouthguard that can mitigate the negative and often painful effects of grinding your teeth. Bruxism is a condition in which you gnash, clench, or grind your teeth. This can happen in the daytime, especially when you’re very focused or concentrating hard on something. But it’s more common that it happens while you’re sleeping, which can be tricky because you might not know it’s happening. The best mouthguard to stop teeth grinding at night is the CustMbite Nightguard, which was created with the assistance of dental professionals for your comfort and protection.
There are specific symptoms that can indicate you do have bruxism, though by the time you experience many of these, you have a pretty serious case. Continue reading to learn how you can find out if you are at higher risk of developing bruxism, symptoms that indicate you may have bruxism, and how the CustMbite Nightguard helps prevent painful consequences of teeth grinding and clenching.
Symptoms and Risk Factors for Bruxism
The most obvious symptom of bruxism is teeth grinding. If you have daytime bruxism, you may notice this in yourself or those around you may notice the sound of your teeth grinding together. If you have a sleep partner, they may notice that you are grinding your teeth at night. The grinding noise can also possibly wake you during the night. However, there are other indicators that you have bruxism in case nobody is able to hear the actual grinding of your teeth.
For example, if you’ve been grinding your teeth for quite some time, you may notice that some of your teeth are chipped, fractured, flattened, or even loose with no obvious cause. In addition, you may have worn tooth enamel that exposes deeper layers of one or more of your teeth. This can be extremely painful. In fact, increased tooth pain or sensitivity are other signs that you might be suffering from bruxism.
If you wake up with tired or tight jaw muscles, it could be a symptom of bruxism. The condition can also cause pain in the jaw, neck, or face. Additionally, you may experience pain that feels like an earache when there is actually nothing wrong with your ear. People experiencing bruxism often have frequent, dull headaches that start in the temples. Finally, bruxism can cause you to chew the inside of your mouth, so if there is this type of damage and you don’t realize you’re chewing the inside of your mouth, it could be because you are experiencing this condition.
Physicians and dental professionals don’t have a complete understanding of what causes bruxism, but believe it may be due to a combination of psychological, physical, and genetic factors. For example, bruxism is more common in young people and children. Because the condition runs in families, you are at greater risk of developing bruxism if you have one or more family members with it.
Increased stress, anxiety, frustration, or anger has been linked with bruxism. So have certain personalities, like people who are hyperactive, aggressive, or highly competitive.
If you’re on certain medications or other substances, you are at higher risk of developing bruxism. One type of medication linked to the condition is psychiatric medication such as certain antidepressants. Using substances like tobacco, caffeine, or alcohol, along with recreational drugs, has been linked to bruxism as well.
The same is true of other conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, GERD, dementia, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, night terrors, and sleep-related disorders like sleep apnea. If you suspect you have bruxism and you have any of these increased risk factors, you should talk to your doctor or dentist.
