A properly fitted mouth guard can help prevent broken teeth and injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw. Have a custom mouth guard made specifically for you if you participate in athletics.
Grinding your teeth (often while you are sleeping), is a condition known as bruxism. It will wear down your teeth, and without protection can destroy tooth enamel and can chip or crack teeth. Once enamel has been destroyed, it cannot be replaced. Constant clenching of the jaw during sleep can lead to headaches, sore jaw and facial muscles, and even a condition called TMJ, which causes chronic pain in the face, jaw, and neck. Teeth grinding while sleeping is unintentional, the most safe and effective way to ensure teeth are protected is to wear a Night Guard that will separate your teeth while you sleep.
