It’s no secret that grinding your teeth at night will lead to tooth damage. Below are three ways to prevent teeth grinding (bruxism):
1. Have us check if you have an abnormal bite. Most people are aware that stress and anxiety can lead to teeth grinding, but something as simple as a misalignment can cause your pain. We have solutions to fix your bite including mouth guards. If you grind your teeth, please schedule an appointment today.
2. Use a Mouth Guard. We can custom make a mouth guard for you to wear at night. A custom-made mouth guard will fit comfortable. A mouth guard will also help protect your tooth enamel.
3. Relieve your stress. Try to relax before you go to sleep if you think your teeth grinding is caused by stress. Some ways to relax are reading a book, exercising, meditating, or take a warm bath.
How to Prevent Sports-Related Dental Injuries
A mouth guard is the best way to decrease the chances of a dental injury during athletic activity. However, a ready-to-wear mouth guard purchased at a store will not suffice. These mouth guards are not custom-made, so there is little protection for your mouth. At Marietta Dental Professionals, we can quickly make a custom-fitted mouth guard to protect you from sports-related dental injuries.
