A number of individuals grind or clench their teeth while they sleep. Known as bruxism, the condition is a result of involuntary movement, and affects nearly 40 million children and adults in the United States alone. There is no cure for the condition, but the good news is there are effective treatment options available. For some, the condition is ongoing, for others it can be temporary. Some people only realize they are clenching and grinding during sleep if family members tell them. Others are alerted to the condition when dental or health problems arise as a result. If you grind or clench your teeth while you are sleeping, major dental and health problems can occur. One of the most effective treatments for bruxism is with a high-quality custom-fit nightguard from us.

People who have the habit of grinding or clenching their teeth put a lot of pressure on their teeth. Often one of the first signs of grinding and clenching is severe tooth sensitivity. If you experience tooth sensitivity and you continue grinding or clenching your teeth, you will likely start waking up with jaw pain or a headache. The best way to avoid waking in pain during the night is with a high-quality night mouthguard.
Constant sleep disruptions can make you irritable and cause you to lose your concentration during the day. It can negatively affect your productivity because you will not be able to focus on your personal or professional life. Lack of sleep can result in other health conditions and problems, both physical and mental. One of the best ways to ensure a good night's sleep and improve your quality of your life is a premium quality night mouthguard.
