Benefits of a mouth guard
A mouth guard, also known as a bite guard, is beneficial if a person grinds or clenches their teeth while sleeping. Grinding and clenching of the teeth can be a common occurrence among patients of any age or gender, but is especially common for those who suffer from stress. You may not even be aware that you clench or grind your teeth while sleeping until the damage to your teeth is too far-gone.
Effects of clenching and grinding your teeth include:
- Broken, chipped, or fractured teeth
- Damage to existing dental work
- Loose teeth
- Sore teeth
- Pain in jaw joints
- Neck pain
Bite guards, save your teeth and your money
Preventing this stress on your jaw is easy to do with a bite guard. Patients can conveniently wear a bite guard while they sleep or during the times of day in which they tend to clench or grind their teeth.
