Do you grind your teeth while you sleep at night? Do you frequently wake up with a sore jaw? If so, our dentists may recommend that we fit you for a custom night guard in Woodbridge, Virginia. Night guards are beneficial for patients who suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching. Many individuals are completely unaware that they have such a condition. If during your appointment, one of our team members notice that you have signs of teeth grinding and clenching, we may recommend that you get a night guard to protect your smile.
Common symptoms of tooth grinding and clenching include:
- Chronic jaw, facial and ear pain
- Frequent tightness in the jaw
- Tension headaches and migraines on a frequent basis
- Excessive tooth wear
- Worn tooth enamel that exposes inner layers of the tooth
- Indentations on the side of the tongue
- Tooth sensitivity
A night guard can help combat these symptoms, helping you sleep more comfortably while protecting your teeth from long-term damage. The night guards we make are comfortable to wear and are made custom to your smile.
