Do you ever wake up with tooth pain or a headache? Unsure of why it’s happening? There’s a good chance you’re suffering from bruxism, a condition that causes you to grind and clench your teeth. It often occurs at night. Some people experience it during the daytime, while they’re conscious, during a period of stress or anger.
Who is most affected by bruxism?
About 10% of people and as many as 15% of children have this condition. It tends to be even more prevalent in families with a history of bruxism (up to 50%). As your dentist in Lewiston, we can spot the signs of bruxism and make a diagnosis.
Bruxism occurs at night because the muscles and nerves end up contracting involuntarily. And these are some mighty muscles. You may be surprised to hear this, but… they can generate 1,000 pounds per square inch of force.
Bruxism nightguards protect teeth while they’re vulnerable
You can go to your local pharmacy to pick up a boil-and-bite guard, but you won’t be as pleased with the results. For a better fit and feel, speak to your dentist at Androscoggin Dental Group about personalized nightguards designed to fit your smile to a T. The investment is well worth it!
Call your dentist in Lewiston today! Don’t wait and suffer in silence. We’d be happy to take a look at your smile and determine if a bruxism night guard is the best course of action.
