Protect Your Smile with a Mouthguard for Grinding Teeth

Sleeping Mouth Guard for Grinding Teeth in Calgary AB Area

You only have one set of permanent teeth; do you do enough to protect them? Sure, you brush and floss your teeth daily and never miss your bi-annual dental appointments in Calgary, Alberta. What else can you do to keep your smile healthy and strong? Have you been told you clench and grind your teeth? If yes, there is one more thing you can do to protect your smile: get a nightguard from Lake Chaparral Dental Care.

Signs of Bruxism

Teeth grinding, technically known as bruxism, is the grinding, clenching, and gnashing of teeth. Often, this occurs involuntarily when sleeping, although it can happen when awake. You may not know you have bruxism, but the following signs can tell all is not well. These include:

  • Jaw soreness
  • Constant migraines and headaches
  • Flattened, chipped, or worn-down teeth
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Neck pain

If you have bruxism, don’t take it lightly. If left untreated, teeth grinding may lead to more pain and costly restorative treatments. If you suspect bruxism, please book an appointment with Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma to protect your smile.

How a Mouthguard Protects Your Smile

All mouthguards in our clinic are given after taking your bite impressions. Since every patient is unique, we don’t offer generic appliances. We custom-make dental splints to sink comfortably over your teeth when sleeping at night. After taking your dentition specifics, we send the images to a dental lab, and it takes about two weeks to fabricate your appliances.

A mouthguard doesn’t prevent bruxism. Instead, it acts as a protective barrier between the upper and lower teeth, reducing the effects of teeth grinding. If you wear your nightguard as recommended, you will wake up feeling refreshed, and your teeth’s enamel won’t show any signs of wear and tear.
