Relief From Teeth Grinding And Jaw Pain With Nightguards
Your headaches and jaw pain could be the result of teeth clenching or grinding (bruxism). These and other complications often occur during sleep.
- Tooth wear and damage
- Broken or fractured dental restorations such as crowns or fillings
- TMJ (temporomandibular joint)
- Muscle, jaw, neck, and head pain
Customized Relief For A Restful Sleep
Your nightguard will be custom-fitted to your unique tooth, gum, and jaw structure. The oral appliance will help eliminate bruxism (teeth grinding) and enable you to have a more restful sleep.
The acrylic materials used to craft your nightguard will fit your teeth much like a retainer. Wearing your appliance during sleep will hold your teeth in place and prevent them from improper wear. Your jaw will be guided into a proper, relaxed position.
Healthy tooth and jaw alignment can help reduce TMJ issues, related jaw pain, and headaches.
Contact your El Dorado dentist, Dr. Siri Ziese, DDS, at Ziese Family Dentistry about your tooth wear or jaw pain. Schedule an examination to discuss how a nightguard can provide relief and protect your teeth.
