Bruxism Symptoms

What is Bruxism?

A condition that sees you clenching and/or grinding your teeth continuously during sleep. The condition is often related to stress and anxiety and many people suffer with sore or tight jaws. It is thought to affect 80% of the population to some degree at some point in their life.

How do mouth guards help with Bruxism?

Mouth guards provide a protective barrier between the upper and lower teeth. This can help reduce grinding, as well as reduce tension in the jaw muscles. Additionally, mouth guards can help cushion the effects of bruxism on the teeth, which can help prevent further damage to tooth enamel and tissues in your mouth. Finally, wearing a mouth guard can help improve your overall sleep quality, which can in turn reduce stress levels and help relieve the symptoms of bruxism.

Overall, wearing a mouth guard is an effective way to help manage bruxism and its associated symptoms.
