Night Guards

Did you know that a very large amount of the population suffers from Bruxism? Bruxism or teeth grinding happens when we are sleeping. There is no known treatment to stop the grinding but there are simple solutions to prevent further damage from happening. If not treated, your teeth can suffer a lot; your teeth can begin deteriorating and wearing down until they reach the nerve which can be very painful. Also, while clenching your jaw, your teeth and muscles can suffer from the pressure and nerves in your face can become very painful to the point where headaches become regular.

Although your teeth can suffer a lot, there is a simple way to prevent your teeth from further damage and that is by using a night guard. This guard will act as a protection between your teeth and will stop your teeth from rubbing and wearing down. The use of a night guard can really help prevent further damage, and although the damage can’t be fixed without the use of cosmetic treatments, it will help you treat your bruxism.

Our dentists here at Parkway Dental can help you treat this by first examining the extent of damage that has been caused to your teeth, facial nerves and jaw. Once you have been evaluated the dentist might recommend further exams including X-rays or if the damage is extensive you might be sent to a specialist. However, if you are interested in using a night guard, your dentist will be able to provide a custom-made one.

In order to do this, a mold of your teeth will be taken with the use of a special material; once the mold is taken it will be taken to the laboratory for a night guard to be crafted to fit your mouth comfortably and with no bother. The night guard will consist of two pieces that are comfortable and soft to wear during the night, and they are attached by metal pieces that are adjustable, which will adjust the alignment of your bite by bringing out your lower jaw forward in a way to prevent your teeth from grinding.

If you think you or someone you know can benefit from night guards, give us a call us at (203) 248-0011, or come visit Parkway Dental at 1869 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden, CT 06514 to talk with one of our doctors.
