Why would you ignore a problem that can damage your teeth, and cause you to experience chronic pain? If you develop a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep, you are at risk for dental injuries, and you can develop persistent problems with your jaw. At our Kansas City, MO dental practice, we offer support for this problem, known as bruxism, by offering patients custom night guards. These guards keep your teeth safe while you sleep, so you are not affected by nightly grinding. If you address the matter promptly, you can solve the problem before permanent damage to your enamel occurs. Acting quickly can also help you because it means you can take advantage of our current holiday special for a discounted guard!
1. You Can Take Advantage Of Our Special Holiday Discount
As part of our holiday special, our practice is currently making custom night guards available at a discounted cost. All of the appliances that we provide our patients are carefully designed to fit comfortably, and stay secure the entire time you are asleep. When in place, it creates a barrier between your upper and lower teeth while also stopping you from putting stress on your jaw joints and muscles. With this stable appliance, you can once again sleep peacefully while avoiding problems with dental pain and sensitivity during the day.
2. Continued Friction From Grinding And Clenching Can Damage Your Teeth
If your teeth go unprotected, and you continue to grind or clench them while resting, the pressure placed on them can damage your enamel. You may notice that your teeth appear flatter over time due to constant friction. The damage can become so serious that chips and cracks form! Cosmetic dental work can be recommended for superficial dental damage. However, if teeth experience serious harm, dental crowns may be required to support them.
3. You Can Develop Chronic Pain Because Of Teeth Grinding
If you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep, you can expect to wake up with pain. What you should know is that this can affect more than just your teeth – you can have pain in your neck, jaw, and head because of bruxism. The chronic pressure on your jaw joints and muscles can even lead to frequent headaches, as well as difficulty moving your jaw.
