If you experience teeth grinding and clenching, you are not alone. There is approximately 8% of the population suffers from sleep bruxism (Lavigne et al., 2008) and the related symptoms of facial pain, insomnia, and tooth damage. Major cause of bruxism is stress (Giraki et al., 2010), and it can be very difficult to cure. You, as many other sufferers, might be looking for a way to treat your symptoms rather than a full cure. To protect your teeth and reduce symptoms, most dentists suggest a custom night mouth guard.
Dental guards are very effective for sleep bruxism. The most obvious benefit of a teeth guard is the protection it will provide for your tooth enamel. Your teeth are composed of a layer of hard protective enamel covering a layer of dentin which protects the cluster of nerves and blood vessels at the heart of the tooth. Long-term untreated bruxism can erode your teeth through both the enamel and dentin to expose the pulp of nerves and vessels. Not only does this compromise the integrity of your teeth, but can also lead to intense pain.
When a dentist proscribes a night guard for your bruxism, they will usually suggest a custom guard costing anywhere from $300-$500. To protect your teeth and jaws, the cost might seem worthwhile, but it isn't necessary. Impressive Smiles’ professional TEETH PROTECTOR can give you an equally effective and significantly less expensive option.
