The Need for Night Guards: More Common Than You Might Think

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a common issue affecting many individuals. Some patients are aware they are grinding their teeth at night. Many others are not-so-blissfully unaware. 

But the reality is the same: the consequences of untreated bruxism can extend beyond disturbed sleep to include worn tooth enamel, jaw pain, headaches, and other dental concerns. At Maryland Prosthodontic Associates, we recognize the importance of addressing bruxism promptly and effectively with a customized solution that takes your lifestyle and preferences into account. 

Introducing Night Guards: Your Silent Sleep Protectors

Night guards, also referred to as occlusal guards or splints, are custom-designed orthopedic appliances that act as a protective barrier between your upper and lower teeth. Custom crafted from durable materials, these guards serve multiple purposes to enhance your sleep quality and overall dental health. Benefits include:

Teeth Preservation

Night guards in Baltimore & Columbia create physical barriers between your upper and lower teeth. Put, this prevents the surfaces of your teeth from grinding against each other. 

The cessation of grinding immediately safeguards your tooth enamel and reduces the risk of dental complications associated with bruxism.

Jaw Relaxation

By providing a cushioning effect, your night guard can help relax the jaw muscles, minimizing the intensity of teeth grinding. This relaxation also contributes to a more restful and restorative sleep experience.

Pain Alleviation

Individuals experiencing jaw pain or discomfort due to bruxism often find almost immediate relief with the regular use of night guards. These appliances distribute the forces associated with grinding, reducing strain on the jaw joints in addition to lessening tooth damage.

Headache Prevention

Have you been waking up with headaches due to your teeth grinding? You may already know that bruxism can contribute to tension headaches, especially upon waking. Night guards aid in alleviating the excessive pressure on the jaw, diminishing the likelihood of these inconvenient and painful morning headaches.

Do You Need a Night Guard?

If you do not notice on your own, your dentist often sounds the first alarm that your teeth grinding is becoming a serious problem. Night guards may be beneficial if you experience:

  • Teeth Grinding: Persistent grinding sounds during sleep or worn tooth surfaces may indicate bruxism.
  • Morning Jaw Discomfort: If you wake up with jaw pain or stiffness, it could be a sign of teeth clenching.
  • Headaches: Frequent tension headaches, especially in the morning, may be linked to bruxism-related muscle strain.
  • Tooth Sensitivity: Increased tooth sensitivity may result from enamel wear caused by grinding.
  • Sleep Disturbances: If your partner notices loud grinding noises or if you feel fatigued despite a full night's sleep, bruxism may be the culprit.
