Who Needs an Occlusal Nightguard?
If you suffer from either nighttime bruxism or TMJ disorder, you can benefit from an occlusal (dental) nightguard. The CustMbite Nightguard is the best occlusal nightguard on the market for many reasons, which are discussed below. If you’re not sure if you suffer from bruxism or TMJ disorder, the following signs and symptoms can give you an idea of whether you can benefit from a nightguard.
Bruxism is a condition in which you gnash, clench, or grind your teeth. If you do so during the day, you can train yourself to notice when you do and to stop doing so. You can’t do this for nighttime bruxism, though, so that’s why you need a quality occlusal nightguard like the CustMbite Nightguard. The most obvious sign of bruxism during sleep is waking yourself or your sleep partner with the noise of teeth grinding. There are other symptoms that are not quite as obvious.
For example, if you have teeth that are fractured, loose, chipped, or flattened, it could be a result of bruxism. You’ll want to check with your dentist to see if there are other causes. The same is true if you have worn tooth enamel that exposes deeper layers of your teeth, which is often accompanied by extreme sensitivity or even pain. If you experience increased tooth sensitivity or pain, the cause may be bruxism, but again, you need to check with your dentist to see if there are other causes.
You may wake up with tired or tight jaw, face, or neck muscles. You may also experience an earache that has no other obvious explanation. People who suffer from bruxism often have frequent headaches that begin in the temples. If you are concerned you have nighttime bruxism and you have any of these symptoms, check with your dentist. They will most likely suggest you begin to use a nightguard to help alleviate the painful symptoms and prevent the condition from causing further damage including TMJ disorder.
TMJ disorder occurs when the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) comes out of alignment for any reason. It can be caused by severe bruxism or by a blow to the face or jaw. It can also be caused by arthritic conditions that erode the disk that causes your jaw to move easily. Some of the symptoms of TMJ disorder are similar to those for bruxism. These include pain or tenderness in your jaw or face or an earache that has no other cause.
Additional symptoms of TMJ disorder include pain in one or both of your temporomandibular joints. You may also experience difficulty or pain while chewing. Severe cases can cause your joint to lock, making it difficult to fully open or close your mouth. The most obvious sign of TMJ disorder is a clicking noise or grinding sensation when you chew, talk, or yawn. The go-to initial treatment for TMJ disorder is the same as that for bruxism—a quality nightguard. This does not solve TMJ disorder, but it can alleviate most of the consequences of the condition.
