Night Guards (a.k.a. Teeth Guard for Sleeping)
Headaches…jaw pain…tooth pain…fractured or unevenly worn teeth – all can be caused by grinding your teeth at night. You probably aren’t even aware of doing it, but your spouse may hear you. Or you may be a silent grinder, but you’re grinding. Fortson Dentistry will see the signs and can help you protect your teeth. A well-fitted night guard may be just the answer to solving this troublesome and often health-damaging condition.
Grinding can be caused by:
- Stress, worry
- Sleep disorders
- Abnormal bite
- Missing or crooked teeth
Getting to the root of the problem is critical for your physical, emotional and oral health. Until you determine the cause and cure it, you can protect your teeth and reduce or eliminate the pain grinding causes you by sleeping with a night guard. Where can you get a mouth guard for sleeping? If you live in Southeast Michigan, Fortson Dentistry can custom-fit a night guard for your mouth and give you a restful night’s sleep free of grinding and pain.
