Nightguards in North York

Bruxism is the term used to describe the grinding and clenching of teeth, often during sleep. As with most problems that occur during sleep, bruxism often goes undetected until a spouse or partner hears the grinding at night or damage is detected by your dentist.

Bruxism is often caused by factors such as:
  • Stress
  • A reaction to pain
  • Certain sleep disorders
  • Teeth that are misaligned.

The problem is often increased with the consumption of caffeine and alcohol. In severe cases grinding and clenching can cause dental problems including chipping, hot and cold sensitivity, damage to dental work and more serious scenarios.

Signs of bruxism include sensitive teeth, jaw muscle pain in the morning, tooth tips that are flattened or dull, the sound of grinding during sleep.

The effects of bruxism can be treated through the use of a Nightguard. Nightguards are mouthguards designed to protect your teeth from grinding together while you sleep.

If you suffer from Bruxism or Teeth Grinding in general, visit us at our North York Dental Office and ask us about Nightguards.
