Unconscious grinding of the teeth during sleep is a condition known as bruxism. If you are grinding your teeth in your sleep most nights, you should contact our office for a bite guard.
A bite guard (sometimes called a night guard) is a removable dental appliance that is similar to an athletic mouth guard. It provides a barrier between your top and bottom teeth to protect them while you sleep.
We will custom fit your bite guard to ensure your comfort and safety. Bite guards can protect your teeth from wear, gum irritation, enamel damage, and jaw pain.
At your appointment, we will discuss other ways to help reduce or eliminate night grinding. This may include avoiding chewing gum, alcohol, and caffeine, as these increase the risks of grinding.
If you suspect you may have issues with teeth grinding, contact Dorsa Family Dentistry and arrange a consultation with our dentist, Dr. Sophi Nabavi.
