It is possible that you have bruxism if you often experience headaches, jaw pain, or earaches, as well as clenching and grinding your teeth while sleeping. It's important to know that teeth grinding occurs when we're stressed, frustrated, or anxious.
It's a habit that should not be taken lightly, because besides the immediate pain it can cause, your teeth will suffer long-term damage. iTero's digital impression scanner is capable of creating highly detailed 3D digital impressions of a patient's teeth, gums, and bite using powerful software. At our office in Chicago Night guards are a non-invasive treatment for bruxism. Night guards help prevent the wear and damage caused by teeth grinding. In order to prevent contact with opposing teeth, a night guard is inserted over your top or bottom arch and is custom-made by your dentist out of soft material.
A mouth guard is an essential part of protecting your teeth. There are three types of mouth guards available: pre-made mouth guards, “boil-and-bite” mouth guards, and custom-made mouth guards.
When you choose a night guard, make sure it is tear-resistant, comfortable, well fitting, easy to keep clean, and does not interfere with your breathing. Those requirements will be met by a night guard we create for you, since it is custom-made just for your teeth, so it will fit your mouth.
