It’s no secret that grinding your teeth at night will lead to tooth damage. Below are three ways to prevent teeth grinding (bruxism):
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
