While many people struggle with nighttime bruxism (otherwise known as teeth grinding) this issue can also manifest during the day. This “daytime bruxism” may be difficult to deal with for a number of reasons, but solutions are available. If you approach this problem carefully and choose the right products, your daytime bruxism can be just as easy to treat as nighttime bruxism.

If you're searching for a solution, you might want to consider CustMbite's Nightguard or Hard Surface Nightguard. These oral appliances protect your teeth in a reliable manner, and although they function well during sleep, they can also be worn during the day. They're also much more comfortable than other similar products due to their lightweight material and customizable design.

What is Daytime Bruxism?

Bruxism is also known as teeth grinding, and it may occur for a number of reasons, including stress, a misaligned jaw, or certain injuries to the jaw area. Many people experience considerable teeth grinding at night, but some also struggle with clenching and grinding during the day. This is particularly common if you're dealing with considerable amounts of stress or anxiety, and it may be associated with certain psychological conditions such as depression or autism.

If left unaddressed, bruxism can cause significant damage to your teeth, and it may even throw your entire jaw out of alignment. These issues can in turn lead to costly medical treatment and frequent visits to the dentist. Obviously, the best option is to address your bruxism before it causes lasting damage.

How Do You Treat Daytime Bruxism?

Under normal circumstances, it can be difficult to deal with bruxism. During daytime conditions, this can be even more challenging. Wearing a nightguard during the night is an obvious solution, but wearing one of these oral appliances during the day can be unrealistic.

Fortunately, CustMbite's Nightguard is lightweight, flexible, and soft. Better yet, it is completely customizable, resulting in a “barely-there” feel. This all leads to an oral appliance that you can wear while talking and drinking, making it an ideal choice for daytime use. Other mouthguards may be way too bulky to wear during the day.

If you find yourself working from home like so many other Americans today, popping in your mouthguard during the day may be much easier than you thought. As long as you clean your guard regularly, there's no reason why you can't wear it during the day as well as at night. It's easy to clean too. If you're looking for a reliable cleaner, look no further than the CustMbite All Natural Oral Appliance Cleaner.

Other Alternatives for Daytime Bruxism Treatment

Of course, there are a few other alternatives for daytime bruxism that you might want to consider. If you believe stress is the source of your teeth grinding, you might want to get in touch with a mental health professional. You can wear your nightguard until your treatment provides sufficient results, helping to reduce tooth damage.

What Are My Options for Bruxism Mouthguards?

If you're searching for effective solutions for daytime bruxism, consider CustMbite's reliable products:
