Teeth Clenching & Grinding Treatment in Hamilton
Sometimes we put our teeth in a position to be damaged. Sometimes that damage happens when we are doing nothing more than sleeping after a long, difficult day. Patients who grind and clench their teeth while they sleep have a condition known as bruxism, and it can cause just as much damage as (if not more than) an athletic event.
So what is there to do? How can you protect yourself? Custom nightguards from Dr. Ricciardi’s office can protect your smile while you sleep.
Custom Acrylic Bruxism Nightguards to Protect Your Smile While You Sleep
It is fairly common for American adults to suffer from a condition called bruxism without ever knowing it. With this condition, you actually clench and grind your teeth as you are sleeping. This may be due to stress or a misalignment in your teeth. Whatever the cause, the damage is the same: worn-down, cracked, or broken teeth.
In order to protect yourself, we recommend an acrylic bruxism nightguard, custom made just for you. To be worn at night while you sleep, this nightguard protects your teeth from coming in contact with one another. Even if you continue to grind or clench your teeth, no damage can occur to your teeth.
At Dr. Ricciardi’s office, we work to help you prevent damage before it starts. Custom-made nightguards for sleep can help you keep your natural teeth for the rest of your life.
