THE EFFECT PREGNANCY CAN HAVE ON DENTAL HEALTH
When a woman becomes pregnant, her body begins to release a hormone called relaxin. This hormone prevents premature contractions and softens up ligaments and joints, especially in the pelvic region. This is helpful during the birthing process.
A surprising effect of the hormone is that the periodontal ligaments that hold her teeth also relax, which can lead to a slight shifting of the teeth during and immediately after a pregnancy. A common autonomic response to this is the clenching or grinding of the teeth, also called bruxism.
Bruxism can cause pain in the jaw and in the nerves of the teeth if the grinding is severe enough, and can cause the teeth to shift even more. If you suffer from TMJ disorder, commonly called TMJ, teeth clenching at night can produce the same effect. Continue reading to learn how using one of CustMbite's family of products can help with this common pregnancy problem.
It's common during pregnancy to experience difficulties sleeping. The tooth and jaw pain caused by bruxism or TMJ, whether it's a new condition or a pre-pregnancy condition now exacerbated, can make it difficult to get a solid night of sleep. Add to this the discomfort of the growing belly, the heartburn, and the general aches and pains associated with pregnancy, and you can see that it may be difficult to sleep well during this time.
A lack of sleep is more than just inconvenient, as there's a higher risk of experiencing particular pregnancy complications for women who don't get enough sleep during gestation. A few of these conditions are preeclampsia (dangerously high blood pressure), gestational diabetes, longer labors, and higher rates of cesarean section births.
If you're experiencing sleep deprivation brought on by bruxism or TMJ during pregnancy, the solution can be as simple as purchasing and using one of our sleep mouthguards.
CustMbite makes three different nightguards. Depending on your circumstances, one of these will work best for you.
- CustMbite Nightguard – mild to moderate bruxism
- If you experience mild to moderate teeth grinding and clenching due to bruxism or TMJ during pregnancy, the CustMbite Nightguard is the best product for you. It is comfortable, customizable, and tough enough to prevent you from grinding or clenching your teeth during sleep.
- CustMbite Hard Surface Nightguard – severe bruxism
- If you experience more severe teeth grinding and clenching, you might need the CustMbite Hard Surface Nightguard. This is more durable than the regular nightguard and can stand up to even the toughest bruxing. If you tend to chew through a regular nightguard, try this one instead.
- CustMbite Snoring System – loud snoring with bruxism
- If you or your partner can't sleep due to your loud snoring in addition to teeth clenching and grinding, the CustMbite Snoring System should be your go-to product. The snoring system consists of two mouthguards (upper and lower) that feature tori, which gently move your tongue out of the airway. Unlike other anti-snoring devices, ours does not attempt to move your jaw forward which is ineffective and can be dangerous.
A mouthguard for sleep provides a cushion for your teeth if you grind or clench them during the night. Since grinding and clenching can ruin restorative dental work, crack teeth, and even loosen them, especially during pregnancy, it is in your best interest to use a CustMbite nightguard when you sleep.
The CustMbite family of products was developed with the help of dental professionals. It is easy to breathe, speak, and drink when wearing one. This is different from many other sleep guard products on the market. People who use other mouthguards complain that they are big and bulky, make it hard to breathe, and are uncomfortable. They may even grind their teeth right through the mouthguard.
That's not a problem with the CustMbite family of products because of the patented VistaMaxx material they're made of. This material is tough but thin, and completely comfortable. It cushions your teeth perfectly because you mold it to fit your mouth specifically.
Because the nightguard is so comfortable, you are more likely to wear it on a consistent basis, which can help protect your teeth's enamel over the term of the pregnancy. At the same time, you can protect any expensive dental work you've had done from the damage that could be done by bruxism.
The CustMbite nightguards are easy to custom fit. It takes only a couple of minutes, a microwave, and a bowl of cold water. You don't have to mess around with dangerous boiling water like with many other guards.
If your bite changes, you won't have to buy additional mouthguards because you can easily remold any of the CustMbite mouthguards as many times as you need to. The guards are also easy to care for. They're made of a material that prevents the absorption of bacteria and can be cleaned with our CustMbite All Natural Oral Appliance Cleaner. Just spray, wipe, and rinse, and your nightguard will be ready to wear next time you're ready to sleep.
