A night guard is a fitted plastic piece molded to your teeth to protect them from clenching or grinding at night.
Approximately eight per cent of the population experiences bruxism at night, according to the National Library of Medicine. It can cause several issues, but you might not realize you’re doing it until your dentist tells you during your regular checkup.
If you’re experiencing unexplained tooth damage, headaches, jaw tension, poor sleep or snoring, you may be grinding your teeth at night. If you think you may benefit from a nightguard, make an appointment at one of our Winnipeg dental clinics located in Garden City Shopping Centre and St. Vital Centre. We can also suggest other ways to treat your teeth grinding.
