The link between teeth grinding and sleep disorders and a teeth grinding mouth guard solution

The link between teeth grinding and sleep disorders and a teeth grinding mouth guard solution

The presence of bruxism at night can cause great distress and discomfort, and it can further exacerbate sleep issues and disorders. However, there are tools you can use to alleviate pain and prevent future damage to your teeth and mouth. Wearing a teeth grinding mouth guard is an excellent way to relieve symptoms caused by bruxism.

Bruxism and how it is related to sleep issues

Bruxism is when one grinds, gnashes, or clenches their teeth, or when one thrusts the mandible. It affects the jaw muscles, one’s teeth, and the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). This condition can happen voluntarily or involuntarily and can be a result of stress, upset, fear, or anxiety. While it may be present in the daytime, it can also be present at night, while one is sleeping. This is commonly referred to as sleep bruxism, and it can cause painful and unpleasant side effects. 

The presence of sleep bruxism has a high correlation with the presence of sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea (Kostrzewa-Janicka, et. al.). Suffering from either is incredibly difficult to manage, and dealing with both can be downright unbearable. Sleep bruxism can even exacerbate the symptoms of common sleep disorders, further disrupting one’s sleep.

The symptoms of sleep bruxism

The symptoms of sleep bruxism are vast, and they include, but are not limited to, the following:

Flattened, loosened, or chipped teeth

Loss of teeth

Tooth pain and sensitivity

Mouth pain and sensitivity

Tired or tight facial and jaw muscles

Worn teeth enamel

Facial pain, especially the head, neck, and jaw

Headaches, both dull and achy

Facial soreness

Sleep disruption

Inside cheek damage from chewing

As you can imagine, these symptoms are not only physically damaging, but they can pose mental and emotional health issues, as well. Remedying the effects of sleep bruxism can also be costly, and a custom teeth night guard can help mitigate those negative effects. 

The solution: a custom teeth night guard

A custom teeth night guard, or a teeth grinding mouth guard, is a device one wears over the surface of their teeth while they sleep. It provides a cushion that protects the teeth from the effects of sleep bruxism. This is a cost-effective and sustainable choice for those suffering from this condition, and we offer a teeth grinding mouth guard that outlasts generic drug store mouth guards. 

Not only that, but we have an easy how-to guide to assist you in obtaining a custom-fit night guard. We also have a lowest-price guarantee, as well as a 30-day guarantee. We love what we do, and we are sure you will be 100% pleased.

Ready for a better night of sleep and less jaw pain?

If you are experiencing pain and tooth damage (and concurrent sleep issues) that come from suffering from sleep bruxism, you are not alone, and there is a solution for you. Purchase one of our teeth grinding night guards today and be on your way to protecting your teeth from damage - and the best sleep of your life.
