Nighttime mouth guards are all the rage. Get yours.
- Posted on: Oct 30 2015
You might have noticed a little detail in today’s TV and movies: a character slipping in their mouth guard as they slip into bed. Or you might have mentioned something about mouth guards to a friend, and they’ve told you they have one – and love it! To say that mouth guards are the personal little secret of many is no longer the case. The positive effects of wearing one are starting to be big news.
What can a mouth guard do for me?
Just to name a few of the benefits, a mouth guard can:
- Protect your teeth and dental work from grinding
- Protect your teeth and jaw from the effects of daily anxiety
- Put an end to jaw and headaches
Many of us take our stress out on our jaws – ouch!
Sometimes it seems that when our brain doesn’t know where to release our stressful thoughts, it shoots them straight to our teeth and jaw. A mouth guard can shield both from stress-grinding, acting as a shock absorber and a barrier between you and any anxiety you may be experiencing.
Waking up with a headache is no way to start the day
When you think of people you know who sleep like hibernating bears, mouth wide open and drooling, it’s hard to accept that you might be tightening your bite and gnashing your teeth all night long. You likely wake up to an aching jaw and headache often. This kind of constant pressure radiating through our heads is just too much for our jaws and teeth to take.
Dentists call this bruxism
Bruxism can be caused by lots of things, among them:
- Teeth that are misaligned
Sometimes grinding is temporary, and will disappear when the source of the anxiety does. But for those of us who grind on a fairly regular basis, it isn’t a condition that should be left untreated.
