Think you are sleeping soundly during the night? You could actually be causing extensive damage to your teeth!
Tooth grinding or clenching (also known as bruxism) usually occurs during sleep, and so can often go unnoticed. Over time, bruxism can cause extensive damage to your teeth, and cause a range of other symptoms including:
Headaches and migraines
Obstructed airway during sleep
At Absolute Dental Care, we can provide night guards to manage nocturnal bruxism.
These guards are fabricated to your unique specifications, and are designed to protect your teeth and keep your bite in proper alignment. Bruxism can lead to serious health conditions such as TMJ disorder and sleep apnoea, and so it is important to address this condition for the sake of your oral and overall health
