Do you grind your teeth at night? If so, our dentists can fit you for a custom night guard in Houston, Texas, to keep your teeth at their best. Night guards are beneficial for patients who suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching. For many individuals, they 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 teeth grinding and clenching may 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 to 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.
