What is a night guard and when would I need one?
Headaches, jaw pain, tooth pain, fractured or unevenly worn teeth – all can be caused by grinding your teeth at night. If you grind your teeth at night, you may not even be aware you're doing it. During your dental exam, Mayfair Dentistry can detect the signs of teeth-grinding and develop a plan to help you protect your teeth. A well-fitted night guard may be just the answer to solving this troublesome and often health-damaging condition.
Teeth grinding can be caused by:
- Stress or worry
- Sleep disorders
- Abnormal bite
- Missing or crooked teeth
Getting to the root of the problem is critical for your physical, emotional and oral health. Until you determine the cause and cure it, you can protect your teeth and reduce or even completely eliminate the pain grinding causes you by sleeping with a night guard. Mayfair Dentistry offers custom-fitted night guards so that you can get a restful night’s sleep free of grinding and discomfort.
