Nightime Grinding Protection Options in Kirkland, WA
A night guard may appear similar to an athletic mouthguard, but this appliance plays a different role. Night guards protect your teeth and jaws from the effects of teeth grinding during sleep, also known as bruxism.
Many patients suffer from bruxism. The condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress. Nocturnal teeth grinding wears your teeth and may even cause them to crack. A night guard absorbs the pressure from bruxism, safeguarding your teeth and jaws.
If you ever awaken with a sore jaw, jaw locking, aching teeth, or jaw joint popping, please inform Alder Creek Dental right away. You may be experiencing bruxism. We can craft a custom nightguard fitted to your unique oral anatomy to protect you from potentially serious long-term problems.
