Do you ever experience jaw discomfort or headaches when you wake up in the morning? It may be time to consider wearing a nightguard while you sleep.
This item can protect your teeth and TMJ and act as protection against further damage.
What Is A Nightguard? What Are Its Benefits?
A night guard is a device that protects your teeth from grinding against each other while you sleep. It can help to prevent jaw pain and fractured teeth or dental work.
Who Should Wear A Nightguard?
Anyone who are experiencing discomfort when they wake up in the morning or has visible symptoms of teeth clenching and grinding. If you are not sure whether or not you should wear a nightguard, speak to one of the dentists at Aesthetic & Implant Center of Atlanta.
Choosing the Best Nightguard
There are a few factors to consider when selecting an oral appliance. There are three main types: custom-made, boil-and-bite, and pre-formed.
Custom-made night guards are made specifically for your teeth and provide the best fit. They are more comfortable, durable, and effective.
Boil-and-bite night guards are made by placing them in boiling water, then into your mouth to create a semi-mold. They provide a semi-personalized fit, but they are not as good as custom-made appliances.
Pre-formed “stock” nightguards are the cheapest option, but they do not fit well and are more difficult to wear.
