If you can answer yes to the following questions you may benefit from a night guard:
Do you frequently wake up with a sore jaw?
Do you wake up with a Dull headache?
Do you wake up with tooth pain?
Have you noticed your teeth looking chipped and/or grinded down?
Have you noticed Swelling (occasionally) on the side of your lower jaw caused by clenching?
if you have answered yes to all or some of the questions you might have a condition called Bruxism, Teeth Grinding. Bruxism affects 10 to 15 percent of adults, according to the American Dental Association (ADA).
Dr. Sinha normally recommends Night guards for this special type of condition.
This appliance is typically worn while sleeping through the night. The Night Guard will prevent the surfaces of your teeth from grinding together, and prevent you from chipping and cracking your teeth any further. it will also help relive any straining your jaw muscles.
