If you notice you clench your jaw or grind your teeth while you sleep, a night guard may offer you some relief and protect your mouth.
Dental night guards can help give patients who grind their teeth, an issue called “bruxism,” or clench their jaw at night a resting place to avoid any further damage. It is important that if you do suffer from any of these issues you speak with your dentist about what can be done.
Some of the signs and problems associated with grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw include:
- Jaw, neck or face pain
- Damaged teeth
- Worn tooth enamel
