Clenching and Grinding Mouthguards in Plantsville

Clenching and Grinding

Southington Dentistry | Gum Disease, Jaw Pain/TMJ and Cosmetic Dentistry

Have you ever woken up with a sore or clicking jaw? Are you experiencing unexplained headaches? Are your teeth worn down, sensitive or damaged? You might be a compulsive teeth grinder and not even know it!

Compulsive teeth grinding is known as bruxism, which is just one aspect of a larger condition known as TMD (temporomandibular disorders). Along with bruxism, one can experience TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) which causes the jaw to pop, click, or lock when opening and closing.

How Do I Know I’m Grinding My Teeth?

When it happens while we sleep, we don’t always know we’re doing it. But if you experience the following symptoms, make an appointment with Dr. Neil Salesky at Southington Dentistry today. He can determine what the causes are and help you find a solution:

  • Damaged teeth
  • Strained jaw muscles
  • Snoring
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Migraines

The Solution? A Well-fitting Mouthguard!

One of the most effective treatments for jaw pain and bruxism is a custom-made dental mouthguard or dental night guard. Dr. Salesky can help determine if you are grinding your teeth and fit you for a custom guard right in this office. Patients who wear their mouthguards regularly can alleviate their symptoms, and patients see and feel results almost immediately!

Benefits of a Custom Mouthguard

Southington Dentistry | Contouring and Bonding, Dentures and Family Dentistry in Southington

Patients who are committed to wearing their mouthguard experience:

  • Better sleep
  • Fewer headaches
  • Significant reduction in jaw pain
  • Improved quality of life

The main benefit of going to Southington Dentistry for your mouthguard is that you’ll receive the highest quality product, and as a result, drastically improve your condition. Many with Bruxism or TMJ have trouble sleeping throughout the night and wake up frequently. This leads to poor quality of sleep and leaves patients more tired and lethargic throughout the day. The mouthguards received from Southington Dentistry will keep your jaw muscles relaxed so that you can fall into deep restorative sleep without interruption.
