Nightguards for Treating Bruxism

Bruxism is the grinding and clenching of teeth. These habits can damage teeth and many people are not even aware that they suffer from bruxism. The reason many people may not realize they are grinding their teeth is that they are doing it in their sleep. This is where Nightguards are extremely useful in treating this behavior. 

Bruxism Symptoms

Here are the symptoms of the signs of tooth-grinding and teeth-clenching:

  • waking up with a headache
  • sore jaw
  • facial pain
  • fatigue after sleep

Types of Nightguards

Soft Nightguard

Dual Laminate Nightguards
