Bruxism is a sleep disorder where the patient subconsciously clenches the jaw and grinds their teeth while asleep. It is one of the prominent symptoms of sleep apnea - a health condition where the patient experiences shortness of breath and sudden blockages in the airway during sleep. It is essential to get bruxism treated at the earliest, failing, which could result in irreversible damage to the teeth.
A simple yet effective solution for bruxism is a nightguard. A night guard is an oral appliance made from dental-grade plastic. It prevents contact between the teeth from either jaw, thereby keeping them from undergoing wear. The guard also reduces the stress applied to the TMJ and surrounding tissues, which is an effective means to reduce the severity of TMD. We will diagnose your condition thoroughly, scan the teeth to make a digital impression of the teeth, and use the data to custom-fabricate a nightguard from dental-grade plastic. It will offer superior fit and protection and wouldn't interfere with the ideal alignment of the teeth.
